Excellent, and fortunately hard to mess up, since I messed with it a bit-- nothing too grave. We didn't have coconut, AND "the boy" doesn't care for it, so I added another cup of carrots in place of the coconut. 3 cups of carrots is roughly a full pound of carrots, FYI, if you buy them in the smaller 1 1b bags. I shredded with my KA slicer attachment, but probably should have used a smaller grater than the one I did; I had pretty sizable shreds of carrot, and probably would have preferred they "melt" a bit more into the rest of the batter. BUT, my boyfriend raved about it, and I took slices to both of my parents a week and a half later (keeps well in the fridge!), and they both called me later to say it absolutely phenomenal. I threw in some more "baking" spices. Didn't measure, but a few dashes of nutmeg/allspice/ginger. I didn't really notice their flavor, so I guess I could have amped them up-- but the recipe as is didn't need them. I probably went shy on the oil and sugar a little; I always measure the full amount and then toss some of it back into the container so I can feel a little healthier. :P
