Coconut Sour Cream Layer Cake

J. White Harris


I got this delicious cake recipe from my mom. I usually don't care for cake, but this cake is the best I have ever eaten. The coconut and sour cream with a little sugar make a tasty sauce that soaks into the cake so that you can enjoy the wonderful flavor with every bite you take. I would never turn down a piece of this absolutely delicious cake. It is really good!
