    VERY moist, almost like pudding. Tasty. As I had no plain flour, I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 rice flour. Used white vinegar to generate my buttermilk. Since I accidentally put all the coconut in the cake and used another 1/3 cup for top. Added lime zest and juice to icing....and another cup of powdered sugar. I like the extra coconut in the cake. Next time I might try zest of 2 limes in the cake. Adding the zest and juice to the icing really served this cake well.
