This really isn’t the kind of cake I typically make. I’m not a cake person anyway, and when I do have cake I like a bit of glaze. But Dorie Greenspan says it’s a great cake to have with tea and it’s definitely been tea weather the past few days, so I gave it a try. It didn’t hurt that I had shredded coconut in my freezer and coconut milk in my pantry.
The coconut flavor is very subtle and while the cake is sweet, it’s also nice and light. The outside has a bit of crunch to it but the cake itself is soft and smooth. The sprinkling of confectioner’s sugar was my own added touch.
