Thought I would love the concept of a coconut cake/bread, but it came out too dry!! There wasn't enough liquids or fats in this. I would like to try this again, but I would have to tweak it. It needed more of something to make it a bit moister, possibly less flour or more butter or evaporated milk. The bottom of it burnt :(. Flavor was great, just very dry.

I love this cake, since finding this recipe I have baked it so many times, nice accompaniment with a scoop of ice cream. Yum!

My family receipe is slightly different in that we use condensed milk instead of evaporated and we substitute half the coconut for sweet potato.

Like My grandmother I use evaporated milk and Red label wine as well. Please do not forget the rose water and almond; adds a unique flavor.
