November - Coconut Cake

Posted by Gerri

I baked my Coconut Cake on December 5. We were spending a long weekend in New Hampshire. I thought, "Why not take all the ingredients and bake in the relaxing atmosphere of the country?" It worked. The warmth of the wood burning stove and snow seem to go well with the fluffy cake.

I used the recipe Tori posted and found it was easy to manage and turned out well considering I was using an electric stove.
My father-in-law didn't have a wooden spoon that would work, so I used chopsticks to make the holes. I also didn't find the round pans until the next day.
This frosting reminded me of marshmallow fluff. Yum!

I never made a coconut cake before but remember the delicious ones my great aunt used to make. Not bad for a first attempt and I think I'll be making more soon. My in-laws and co-workers received several "hunks" because we couldn't risk keeping too much of it around. Thanks for the inspiration, Tori.

Loved the play of the tropical coconut and the very northern snow!

I need to know what you did differently on the frosting--you know mine was not so pretty! I'm glad you liked it, though. :)
