Or, spread in microwaveable pie plate. Microwave on HIGH 3 min. or until lightly browned, stirring every minute. Watch carefully as coconut can easily burn!

My neighbors came over because they could smell the cake baking! I ended up giving half the cake to them. It tasted even better than it smelled. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!! I will definetly make this again. My family and my neighbors loved it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beginner baker - I made this recipe and it was OK. Beginner baker - I made this recipe and it was OK. I think I may have pulled it out the oven too early b/c my cake seemed a little too moist. But, I will try the recipe again in the future and I think I will use the sour cream and pineapple instead of water tips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this without the coconut at the suggestion of someone else's rating. I made this without the coconut at the suggestion of someone else's rating. The cake was nice and moist. It was easy and not too 'fussy'. The only 'strange' ingredient was the sour cream, but it helped the cake become 'special'. I will make this recipe again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this recipe. I love this recipe. It's so simple. I like to make this when I have to take a desert to a party and it's at the last minute. I didn't have any yellow cake mix so I used a spice cake mix and it turned out lovely. My whole family and guests just gobbled it up.

I had made both & supplied them with both recipes to pick from. They made both & both were a HIT! This one is a little more "summery" with the coconut! - Susi B
