From Betty's Soul Food Collection... Be proud to serve this moist and delicious citrus-spiked cake all dressed up in snowy white coconut.
In the southern U.S., ambrosia cake is extremely popular. If you're offered cake in the South without your host mentioning the flavor, take delight; it will likely be ambrosia cake!
If you love the warm, nutty flavor of toasted coconut, you can toast it before sprinkling on top. To toast coconut, sprinkle it in an ungreased heavy skillet and cook over medium-low heat 6 to 14 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
