Toasted pecans and coconut take this moist cake from good to great, but it's the cream cheese frosting that makes it truly extraordinary. Thank goodness it's a makeover, because you'll definitely want seconds! —Christy White, Oxford, Mississippi

"I found this recipe as a kid in one of my mother's cookbooks. I didn't make it until I was older and now it is requested every Christmas. Sometimes I tint the coconut red and green for the holiday." – Angela Renae Fox, Gober, Texas
