Tropical Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting


I'm taking my new mixer out for a spin. For my very first item I have my eye set on this fabulous cake.


Tropical Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting from Flour Me With Love.


Tropical Cake 1


This cake is very moist and delicious. The only problem I had was that the center was still gooey when I took it out of the oven after 23 minutes. So I put it back in for another 10 minutes, the outside was starting to get really dark, so I took it out and the center was still a little gooey and the outside was a little tough. I'll have to figure out something different if I make this cake again. I took half to work with me today and they loved it. Hubby, however, still has not tried it. I'll just have to temp him with it tonight.
