The cake taste wonderful, but be sure to actually grease and flour the bundt pan, using a spray to coat just doesn't work.

More of a bread than a cake. I don't expect to make this again.

This was really easy to make and turned out great! V. Wilkins is correct in the review... GENEROUSLY grease and flour the pan! Mine stuck and broke in two as I was turning it out of the pan :(. Also note in step 1... it instructs to you mix the crushed cookies with the nuts and coconut, but in step 2 you add them separately. I added them separately. Very yummy recipe!

My family went crazy over this cake...and, it only took me 10 minutes to throw together. It is VERY sweet and VERY dense...and VERY yummy. I frosted mine with a simple cream cheese frosting. Note: you do not need a bundt pan...I made mine in a 10in round cake pan and it worked just fine.

FABULOUS! The picture associated with this image does not do the recipe justice. Mine turned out so much prettier and when I realized I forgot to take a picture it was practically gone. Love it.

I have made this cake for a few years and its my favorite, its very yummy and easy to make. my family loves it. I always make it in oblong pan. so I can cut it in squares.

Wow! Simple yet just delicious. Very dense and sweet. I didn't frost and I'm glad...would have way too sweet that way. However fresh whipped cream would be perfect. Made for a luncheon and everyone loved it.
