“This recipe was conceived from the "ashes of failure." I made Mark H's Coconut Pound Cake, Coconut Pound Cake, but due to my error, I absolutely stuck to the bundt pan and came out in chunks. After I tasted the cake, it was too delicious to even consider trashing, so I came up with this instead. I suppose you could use any tropical fruit, I just used what I had on hand. Amount of fruit and cake you will need will depend on your bowl. I have a very deep trifle bowl (see pic).”
