This cake can be AMAZING with a few adjustments: I combined this with a few recipes that I translated from Portuguese because my husband is from Brazil and it is his FAVORITE:) I use 2 cups of flour at most. It can get very floury...only 2 cups of sugar instead of 2 and a 1/2, and I add a few drops of vanilla essence to make up for the difference. I like to bake it in two 8 inch round cake pans and poke each layer as a separate cake with a separate topping for layering afterwards. THE KEY IS IN THE MILK MIXTURE: Do not use any regular milk at all! Instead go to a store and buy "condensed milk" or "leite condensado" in the international section of the grocery store. It is much thicker and stickier and will not make your cake so soggy!!!! Mix this with 1/2 the can of coconut milk and it will be enough for two 8 inch rounds for sure. Lastly, be sure to use either fresh coconut shavings or sweetened shavings. The smushier the flakes the better. My husband and all of his Brazilian friends say I make this cake just like it's made by the Brazilian Bakeries and their own Mom's- Give it a shot!!!
