    This couldn't be simpler and it was very tasty and moist. I assembled this cake tonight and my family loved it! I plan to make it again for a church luncheon this weekend. Thank you, Linda, for sharing this recipe :)

    This took a little longer for me to make because I couldn't find a frozen pound cake the right size so I had to bake one.The coconut mixture was very good.mine didn't turn out as pretty as the picture but the taste was good this would be a good dessert to make for unexpected guests if you kept the ingredients on hand

    I prefer my poundcake recipe, so used that instead. I can't believe how easy and yummy this was!

    This comes together in minutes, and it is wonderful. Have made it a couple of times now, and everyone loves it. Great in the summertime when you don't want to turn the oven on.

    I used non-frozen pound cake product and did not add chocolate in the middle. Cake was not high enough to allow for 4 layers, 3 works very nicely. I also used the Coco Real product in place of condensed milk and only added nuts to top of cake in case of food allergies. Very easy & delicious!
