Coconut Cake loaded with Coconut!

This recipe is a version of America's Test Kitchen's recipe. They do not put the coconut inside the cake but toast the coconut and pat it onto the frosting. I wanted a white & beautiful cake to present with moist sweet coconut in the cake itself. I took a chance and put half of the coconut in the batter and it turned out exactly as I hoped. This pretty and old fashioned cake is stunning to present and moist and loaded with coconut. ENJOY!
