Very delicious! The cake reminded me a little of a rich banana bread without the bananas. I tried to make it with Splenda instead of sugar at first, but the taste was very dull, so I completed it with sugar. Easy recipe that will stand nicely at room temperature for at least 3 days. Will definitely make this recipe again!
well, that was a cholesterol laden, coconutty slice of yummy un-healthy goodness!!! Soooo good and simple...I don't have a tube pan, but a 13x9 at 275 for about 90 minutes or less worked well
I use to make this cake years ago and lost the recipe. This is the one I lost!! It is absolutely woderful!!!
