This recipe was given to me by my friend in Michigan, she said she got it from her friend who got it from a neighbor.
I tasted this recipe and it is so tender and moist and has just the right bite of lemon and chewy coconut.I tripled the recipe and baked it in 3 8-inch cake pans and filled it with lemon curd. You can use other fillings using the layers too. But this is the basic recipe.
