    rhondalynne's Note:

    This recipe is very easy to make, it is very moist and sure doesn't last long! I found the basic recipe and tweaked it a bit to suit my craving for coconut flavor.

      This was great for a quick dessert. My toddler was even able to help me make it. She poured the melted butter & spread it, then sprinkled on the coconut. She was so proud! I have never made a cake that called for cold milk to be poured over it so that was really intriguing to me. I think the combination of that & the butter/coconut bottom really made this cake moist. Very enjoyable cake! Thanks for sharing, rhondalynne! Made for Fall 2009 Pick A Chef. :)

      I made this for the first time right before Christmas. My apologies for forgetting to review! It is very easy to make and the extras that are added to the cake mix make it extra special. I always get lots of compliments whenever I make this. Thanks for sharing!
