This cake has been in my family for more years than I can remember. My grandmother and my mother used to make this all the time. Now I make it to enjoy all by myself. My kids don't like coconut, so that means all the more for me! Works great in an 8x8 dish. One of those feel-good comfort foods.

My cake came out very flat by putting it in a 9 " pan . I didn't think it had much flavor.

Oh my goodness! I have this exact recipe passed down from my mother some 40 yrs ago. It's very good without the topping and used for strawberry shortcake. Awesome!

I also remember this cake when I was a little girl, 60 years ago. I remember the coconut toasted on top and under the broiler. Unfortunately, I was the one who kept stealing the icing off the top of the cake until there was just a little portion that was still iced. My mother never said a word and was back to baking something else the next day. i can still smell that cake and havent thought of it in years. Thank you for the memory. i definitely will make this.

Made this recipe, using 1/2 of the frosting ingredients as read in other reviews. Was disappointed as the cake was dry and nothing special.

Tried this cake and to my surprise it was pretty good. A little to dry for my taste but good nevertheless. Followed the recipe to the letter.

Have loved this cake since I was a girl. (I'm now 74) My Mother always frosted it with both coconut and pecans before broiling it..
