      This was not the prettiest cake I've ever made, but it was one of the tastiest! I omitted the almonds because they weren't listed in the ingredients list and I didn't have them on my shopping list. I didn't miss the nuts. Some helpful hints for toasting coconut: To Toast Coconut Flakes: 1. Heat the oven to 350°F (180 C). Spread coconut flakes evenly on a cookie sheet. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until light golden brown. Stir the coconut or shake the pan frequently so it will brown evenly. Watch closely to avoid over-browning. 2. To toast in the microwave oven, spread coconut flakes in a microwave-safe pan. Microwave on HIGH for 4 1/2 to 8 minutes, tossing the coconut with a fork after each minute. Made for Photo Tag Game 1/9/09.

      It was a dark, dreary and wet day here....ech! And I thought we would benefit from a little taste of the islands to brighten this day. I found your recipe and I knew that was going to fit the bill. Well...this is just wonderful! The texture was excellent. I had to make a couple of small changes..due to what I had on hand. I only had a 14 oz of pineapple and subbed pecans for the almonds. DH hummed his way through dessert. Thank you for sharing this keeper recipe!!
