I found this recipe at a local paper and adapted it to suit my family's tastes. A friend who doesn't cook much took this cake to a family gathering, and they thought she was an overnight gourmet! —Donna Quinn of Salem, Washington

"Wonderful recipe. I will omit the coconut flakes though as I hate coconut flakes. I will put slices of strawberries on top. Great summer dessert."
