      I made this for my MIL and she loved it! I made a slight change to the syrup as when I made it the first time it tasted way too sweet. I remade it and used about 1 cup each sugar and half & half plus the coconut flavoring -much better. I topped the cake with half toasted coconut/half not. This created variety and thats always a good thing. This cake is extremely light and moist. Very simple to make also. Thanks Paula, for this wonderful recipe that I can now make for my MIL as coconut cake is one of her favorite things! ~Bird

      This had a very nice flavor. I did have a problem with the cake sticking to the bottom of the pan...it could've just been me but it seemed to be the syrup after it chilled in the fridge. I cut it into squares and as I tried to lift it it would just fall apart. It was just us and the kids though and we just care if it tastes good (lol) Thanks for a very simple to make weekend dessert Paula!
