Delicious! Very, very moist and flavorfull. Every forkfull fills your mouth with distint (yet light enough to not overwhelm one another) flavors of coconut, pineapple, nuts, and cinnamon. I omitted the cream cheese icing - didn't want it to mask such delicious flavors. Also, I used BRAZILIAN NUTS(castanha do Para), adding a tropical twist to the cake. This recipe now ranks as my favorite carrot cake recipe. NOTE: it is moist enough to make allowance for overbaking time errors. (The first time I made this cake, I left it in the oven 20 minutes longer than called for. To my surprise it didn't burn. Instead, it formed a delicious, sticky/sugary golden crust around the entire cake (top, sides, and bottom)).
