      Thought this would be a tasty treat and something different. I found it to be just OK. I did cut back on the sugar as Cook Gordon suggested, but I felt that perhaps the coconut could be chopped into smaller pieces. Also, if making ahead-do not pour the juice/liqueur over it until ready to serve. then remove from springform. It will discolor if left to sit in the metal pan.

      This was wonderful. I could not find unsweetened coconut in my grocery, and therefore used the sweetened coconut. I did cut the sugar in half -- beating 1/4 cup with the egg whites and 1/4 cup with the yolks. I served with the whipping cream and fresh berries.
