"Made this for Christmas morning and it was a hit. Not too sweet and just the right moistness. It is definitely a keeper."

"I had everything but the coconut but it still turned out great. It was actually my first bundt cake ever. I improvised and made a coffee cinnamon glaze to go over it. (1 cup powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp powdered instant coffee mix, and milk a tsp at a time until it was the right consistency.) Mine fell apart a bit too but my mother in law said to flour the pan after you grease it to make it come out better."

"I tried this and it was delicious, the only thing is I couldn't get it out of the bundt pan in one piece. What did I do wrong? I used PAM to grease it with, should I have used lard instead?"
