Chocolate Coconut Cake

There is just something about pairing chocolate with coconut-either you love it or not, we happen to really like it.

I have this recipe written down in my about grade 5 handwriting, my mom glued the paper into her old baking book which she handed down to me many years ago.

I made this cake for Valentine’s day and it was such a delicious treat!
