Excellent recipe, very easy to make. Cake tasted amazing, I couldn't find coconut essence in my local supermarket so I used vanilla essence instead. Friends and family loved it, tastes great with custard too. Remember to alter cooking times depending on the depth of the cake. - 04 Dec 2010

I halved the ingredients and used fructose (which i had ground to give a finer texture) in place of the sugar. Baked for 40 mins in a 9inch round tin and it came out dense and moist, very yummy although next time would probably use a little less of the fruit sugar as was very sweet! - 27 Jul 2013
