I made this cake for Easter this year at it was a big hit with my family at our Easter picnic. I think the use of coconut & ginger in this recipe was a big surprise. It is a very moist cake. The recipe says to bake for 55 minutes, but I actually had to bake for about 65 mins. Just test with a toothpick. Also, I did not line my pan with double foil, which I advise you to use double foil or it will ooze out of the bottom of the pan.
