THis is a copycat version of the delicious cake.

Top Review by Nimmireth

Mmmm - yum! I love coconut, and you can really taste it in this recipe! Quite a dense, moist cake, but not unbearably so, and not unbearably sweet, either. Not to die for, but great if you're looking for a coconut cake recipe without frosting, like I was. I probably wouldn't make it for company, because it's pretty plain-looking, but it's a good snack cake! And you could probably frost it with a nice cream cheese or coconut frosting to make it a bit fancier (and sweeter) if you wanted! Thanks, Mysterygirl!
