My dear sweet mother-in-law shared this recipe with me when I became a member of the family over 45 years ago. It has remained on of my favorite cakes! It will stay moist for days...only if it lasted that long!

Big thanks to Mary Lou (and her Mother-in-Law) for sharing this delicious cake with us! The aroma of coconut permeated the entire Test Kitchen as it was baking. What a delight! The Test Kitchen
