Rated 2 out of 5 by from I used this recipe for a cake in two 8 inch round pans. It came out just fine. My only complaint is that it tastes like a box cake. It's way to obvious that it's not from scratch and that isn't the taste I'm looking for. Definitely good if you just want a quick coconut cake. But, if you are looking to impress anyone, this isn't it. I'm still searching for a good from scratch recipe. :)
