I love this:

The Pink Teacup on Grove Street has the best coconut cake in the city. Made from scratch, it's a yellow cake so moist, for a moment it seems like it may not have cooked through. The batter is full of tiny pineapple chips, and the icing is butter cream whipped so light that the coconut curls sink into it.

(from Lucia, Lucia by Adriana Trigiani)

I am coming around on Adriana Trigiani. I resisted the whole Big Stone Gap phenomenon. But this book (from the library) is lovely. Can't you taste that coconut cake?

I think I read the first one of the Big Stone Gap books and rather liked it, although it's been a while.

I'm going to dive into all of them now...Lucia, Lucia was really good.

I should check and see if this cake place she's talking about exists...because the book is set in NYC.
