This three layer bar consists of a coconut and walnut base then a lighter layer with vanilla and cinnamon then finally a sweet glaze.
Very good recipe and a great way to get rid of extra buttermilk! I wouldn't call these "coconut bars" though - to me, it was more of a spice cake. Mine baked in 30 minutes (even at 350 with an oven thermometer), so I'd recommend watching the baking time. I omitted the glaze and it was just fine. Thanks for the recipe! - 05 Jun 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These were wonderful and made EVEN BETTER with a layer of chocolate chips between the crust and the cake! I doubled the coconut and omitted the glaze also. Thanks! - 27 Jul 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These were awesome! I will definitely make them again. I made a few small changes - I reduced white sugar to 1 cup, omitted walnuts and used 3/4 cup coconut instead, and omitted glaze. Unless you don't like coconut I can't imagine anyone not liking this recipe! - 29 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
