The recipes in the book were submitted by directors, choreographers, and dancers in the Houston Ballet that year. This recipe was submitted by Leeanna Vidaurri, Corps de Ballet.

      WOW!!! This cake is outstanding! The only change I made was to add a light layer of pecans in the middle struesel layer. The pan I used was a sunflower type hole-less bundt pan, which looks lovely! A couple of notes... Next time I make it I will put last struesel layer in first (rather than last), meaning it will show on the top of the cake! I used unsweetened coconut, which worked out perfectly. Thanks, loof, for sharing this outstanding cake!! Made for 1-2-3 Hits.

      wow! Great cake. The smell was amazing while baking. It's moist and so yummy. I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup. That's perfect. Thanks Loof :) Made for the Australian recipe swap for March 2011

      I am NO baker and this came out beautifully! I used Katzen's suggestion and put the coconut mixture in first and then 1/2 way through and it worked perfectly. I actually went out and bought the silicone bundt pan to make this and clearly it was a good investment. I FINALLY have a baked item that I can always make for special occasions, etc. It might sound silly, but this is a big deal! :D Made for PRMR tag game. Thanks loof! :)
