"BEWARE; When I took cake out of oven, the filling had fallen to the base of the pan ; since I made this for Christmas--and I am the Grnad'mere!!- It is now going to have to be called "pudding cake"!

I am totally disappointed in this recipe...I wouldn't make it again..Maybe we'll get a laugh out of it at our annual family gathering!! (In the meantime I am making brownies just in case0"

"When I cut the cake, the coconut filling separated from the cake & I ended up with a lot of crumbs on the platter. It was tasty, but I probably wouldn't make it again."

"I was disappointed, it looks better than it was. It was very dry and the filling was not great either. Sorry I didn't like it :("
