    Difference between cake flour and AP flour?

    This recipe has no leavening. That's something I noticed after it was in the oven. The flavor is good, but the texture isn't really a cake. It's more like a combination of a cake and a baked, firm pudding. I'll probably cut it up and make a strawberry trifle with it.

    This was the first time I've made a coconut cake and I don't think I will ever look for another recipe. I made this for a party and people could not say enough good things about it. Almost everyone went back for seconds. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

    The texture of this cake is what makes it! So soft and moist. My icing turned out a little sticky but still amazing overall! Thank you

    My son loves this cake! I expected a much more pronounced coconut flavor with using both the extract and coconut milk. The texture reminds me very much of a pound cake but that could be due to having to substitute corn starch and all purpose flour for the cake flour since I didn't have any on hand. In any case I can't wait till the strawberries are looking better as this cake is just screaming for some fresh sliced berries and whipped cream. (13)
