Does anyone have a recipe for coconut cake? I fell in love with it while on holidays in America (they seem to eat a lot of it out there) but you don't see it much here and I can't find a recipe on the internet that doesn't involve strange american measurements (sticks of butter anyone....?)

A cake not a pie-tyep thingie would be best.

Thanks
