I give this four stars instead of five not because it didn't taste good - it was great - but because I modified the recipe. I made two 9 inch rounds, stacked them with a layer of fruit preserves in between, and frosted the whole thing with cream cheese frosting. I also tweaked the recipe to make it a little lighter - 1/4 cup oil + 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce, 1 1/4 cup sugar instead of 1 3/4 cup, and I used fat-free cream cheese and only 1 cup of powdered sugar for the frosting. I also substituted a cup of golden raisins for the coconut because my husband doesn't like coconut. Ok, so it's still not health food - but those modifications cut quite a few calories, and no one who tried it even noticed the difference!
