"The cake itself is good..the filling may not be to some people's taste. If you look at other recipes, the coconut has 2 of the egg whites beaten stiffly with sugar, then a small amount of flour and the coconut folded it. This makes a lovely filling that isnt heavy and wont sink. Try it both ways!!!"

"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 :("

"I made this cake some time ago- it's missing something- I think it needs more coconut filling- my coconut filling sunk too. I am going to give it another try because I love coconut with chocolate"

"Excellent taste to this cake! Next time I am going to put only 1 1/2 cups of prepared cake mix in pan instead of the 3 cups, and then the coconut and the remaining mix. The coconut had sunk to the bottom of the cake by following the directions. I will definitely make this cake again!"
