My dad is diabetic and he really likes coconut, so I thought I'd try to make this recipe as sugar free as I could for Father's Day. I used a reduced sugar yellow cake mix (1/2 sugar, 1/2 splenda - couldn't seem to find a white cake mix like that). I also added coconut extract instead of almond to the cake mix. For the frosting, I used just a cup of Splenda instead of sugar and found sugar-free Cool Whip. I mixed the sour cream, sugar and coconut and let it sit in the fridge while the cake baked and cooled.
I don't often use coconut, so I forgot about it being sweetened until I was adding some around the sides of the cake! Whoops! I also toasted a bit of coconut for the top of the cake.
My dad said it was really good and asked for a second piece!!! He licked the plate clean both times, so I'd say it was a hit!!!
