    I won't make this again because it is bland. Maybe a little vanilla would be helpful.  -  27 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    What is the tablespoon butter used for?  -  24 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great cake! everybody loved is and baking time was right. I was surprised, too, at the low baking temperature, but cake came out great. Cake is fairly thin and light, so baked through great and if oven temperature is higher, the coconut would burn  -  26 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
