    Has anyone tried toasting the coconut? I've toasted coconut before in cookies that had coconut, and that worked really well, but I'm debating trying it for this recipe.

    This was easy to make. I used low-fat vanilla yogurt in the cake. Made for Ramadan Tag

    GREAT TASTE, EASY PREP, how much more could a person want! I, too, used a vanilla yogurt (fat-free, in my case, 'cause that's what I have around most of the time)! Particularly appreciated the hot topping that soaked in! Definitely a keeper! [Made & reviewed while on tour in Africa on the Zaar World Tour 4]

    Wow! Half of 9X13 pan was gone before supper! The wonderful smell of the cooking cake drew them in the kitchen. Moist,so good, I think it was the use of the yogurt. I have never used yogurt before in a cake, I certainly will again. It smelled like a pancake cooking in the oven. My edges of the cake were a little crispy at 400* but the cake was done in the middle and the crispy edges were ok. I used vanilla yogurt,butter and also used the vanilla extract.The instructions did not say when to put the vanilla in but I put with the liquids. I also let the sugar, lemon juice and water come to a rolling boil, poked holes in the cake with a fork and poured while the cake was still hot. This is a quick, economical, rich tasting moist cake that I would serve anytime especially for guests with a scoop of lemon sherbet.
