Directions

  2. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned and entire top appears dry. Immediately invert pan onto a wire rack; cool completely, about 1 hour. Run a knife around sides of cake and remove from pan.

  4. Split cake into three horizontal layers. Place bottom layer on a serving plate; top with half of the pudding mixture. Repeat layers. Top with remaining cake layer. Frost top and sides of cake with remaining whipped topping. Toast remaining coconut; sprinkle over top and sides of cake. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 14 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 21, 2013

"made this for years only for frosting, I beat a small tub of fat-free whipped topping with a small box of sugar-free pudding mix, and add the orange extract and then enough orange juice to get the consistency I want....and leave off the coconut!!!"
