YUMMY, so moist with a great blend of flavors. I did slice fresh strawberries thin (I have so many in the garden) and topped the pineapple before frosting and it was great. Served at our first bar b q of the season and Everyone requested the recipe and NONE was left for left overs. Easy to follow recipe, however; I was a little confused over what to do with the eggs, but decided those first 3 items just went into the cake batter and that worked out great. Thanks for posting a real winner.
I baked this cake for my dinner group and everyone loved it! DH, DD & I think it tastes a lot better if left out of fridge until it comes to room temperature before serving, which makes it more "Juicy". Otherwise the coconut cream and condensed milk are solid when cold. Kind of like a Dulce Le Leche cake but with a tropical twist. DEFINATELY A KEEPER!!!!! Thank you cookingupastorm!

I barely have time to scratch myself with work, homework, washing, ironing - know what I mean? But when I do have a spare moment I have a glass of wine in one hand and a book, magazine or computer mouse in the other (normally I don't have a spare moment until after 10pm, hence the wine).</p>
