Paired together with a chocolate drizzle, the texture of this cake turns out a decadent bite not unlike that of a candy bar. Martha made this recipe in episode 506 of Martha Bakes

    This was such a success! I made this for our department potluck and I received raves. I have one coworker that doesn't care for sweets but she had two slices and said it was the best cake she had ever eaten. It's not overly sweet or overwhelmingly coconut-y. Definitely use the 10" pan, though. I wasn't able to find one and had to use my 9". That added about 15 extra minutes to the bake time and I was afraid the top would burn. I covered the top with foil and it turned out perfect. It's already on my Thanksgiving menu.

    I made this (this last weekend 2/28) and it was good. I wouldn't say candy bar like but a nice coconut flavor, lighter on the inside and a heavier coconut topping on top. These instructions are clear, easy to follow and bring the promised results. It isn't as sweet as I thought it would be so the bittersweet chocolate topping makes it all work. I would make it again.
