Recipe Comments & Reviews

I have been making this recipe for quite a few years now, went to use it and couldn't find it!! Thanks goodness you still have it up on your site just using some different ingredients but still the same basic recipe. The one I have been using uses almonds, cinnamon and sugar, and toffee bits..Yummy!!!!
I made this for my in-laws who came to visit, it was easy to make, very delicious. Very moist, really liked the glaze made with sourcream
I somewhat enjoyed this recipe. However, my family didn't love it. The almond flavor seemed to be very strong, but I loved the coconut.
