This cake is moist and delicious. I topped it with a homemade coconut cream cheese frosting (1 8 oz pkg cream cheese 1 stick butter 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 2 tsp coconut extract.) Then I topped it with flaked coconut and refrigerated it for 2 hours to firm up the frosting. Everybody at my office party loved it and I recevied no less than 6 requests for the recipe. Read More

I had high hopes for this recipe really I did. I was a little bit worried because of the lack of flour but because of all the other positive reviews I thought I would give it a try. It smelled heavenly in the oven but about a half hour before it was supposed to be done it smelled burnt. When I looked smoke was pouring out of the oven! I pulled it out and even though it still seemed too moist I tried to turn it over onto a serving dish. What I ended up with was a huge... towering... blob. The outside looked like burnt jello greasy glisten and all. I have to admit I didn't want the cake to be a total waste of good ingredients so I picked out a relatively safe looking portion from the inside. It tasted only average nothing special. After it sat for a while the tast improved but I will not be making this again. Read More

I had 12 oz of graham crackers I needed to use up so I scaled the recipe to three fourths and baked it in a 13x9 inch pan. It was done in 30 minutes. The cake didn't rise much but it was moist tender and has a uniquely delicious taste from the graham crackers. It makes a great sheet cake and goes well with a whipped cream cheese or whipped cream frosting. Read More

Yum! This cake was really good! I did have a problem getting it out of the pan but I think if I let it cool more next time around we should be good to go. We hosted a Hawaiian themed party this was dessert and everyone raved about it! I made the Whipped Cream Cheese frosting on the site and served a dollop of it with each piece of cake which seemed to work out well. Will definitely make this one again! Read More
