A nice moist chocolate cake with a different kind of "icing"

Top Review by jesskru

I really liked this recipe and really enjoyed the moistness and texture. I made two cakes one right after the other and realized that no matter how much "Pam" or butter I used in the pan the coconut and nuts stuck to the bottom. Both times I had the same issue. What should I try to keep from having this problem again?
