      This cake was okay. It didn't rise enough for our taste, and wasn't soft enough.

      This recipe was awesome! I LOVE the coconut flavor without the actual flakes. Like others, I ended up adding more of the 3 milk mixture and also added a tsp. of coconut flavoring to the cake mixture. I also used conf. sugar in the whipped cream instead of regular white sugar. This was a huge hit at a work party and despite the fairly long list of ingredients it was easy.

      Delicious recipe! I did have to make slight modifications so it would work for me. I baked it for 25 minutes on 350 F. Also, I ended up putting a whole can of evaported milk (12 oz), a whole can of sweetened condensed milk (14 oz) and about 2 cups of milk so the cake was nice and soggy. Also I used only 1/2 cup of sugar with the whipping cream. I will definitely keep this recipe.
