Reviews for Fruity Coconut Cake Roll
"This was delicious. I served at a wine and cheese gathering and everyone loved it. I will definitely make it again. It was easy to make and can be prepared ahead of time. I did add extra milk to the pudding since I had difficulty mixing it."
"This was okay. I think it would be better if made with regular sponge cake."
"So good, a dessert I don't feel (too) guilty eating! Also made it with extra strawberries, no kiwi, substituted sliced almonds/almond extract for the coconut. Going to make it for July 4th substituting blueberries for the kiwi."
"After thinking about the size of a "roll" this recipe would make, I just used about 2/3 of the batter and it made a "regular" size roll. Really delicious, too!"
"...omitted kiwi and increased strawberries due to 'on-hand' produce. Also, put toasted coconut on top only. A larger jelly roll pan might work better - I cut the finished roll down the middle lengthwise due to fat cake syndrome. ..still got rave reviews and requests for the recipe."
