REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I make this quite often. I use coconut milk instead of regular milk and add 1/4 cup cream of coconut (like coco lopez) into the cake batter. Makes it all extra rich and coconuty!

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Really good and super easy!! I replaced the water used in the cake with coconut milk and decreased the sugar to 1.5 cups. It was still very sweet and totally coconutty! This recipe is a keeper.

I make this same cake all the time,But it is better if you use 18 ozs of frozen coconut and make the mix of coconut,suger,and sourcream the day before and refrigerate it.
