Have a mentioned that I like coconut? I am sure I have 🙂
I was a little excited about this recipe because 1) it has coconut and 2) I get to use my new bundt pan that I got for my birthday. This recipe came together really easy, and while it was baking my house smelled wonderful. When the tea cake was ready to come out of the pan I turn it out and to my surprise it came out perfectly. I was extremely excited and yelled for my husband to come in the kitchen to see how pretty it was 🙂
I have to say that I will never give my husband crap for getting me a bundt pan for my birthday. He will also probably hear me complain less since I won’t have to deal with the dreaded half of the cake stuck in the pan. Which is always a huge downer because I can’t give the cake away in its deformed state, it has to look pretty. So problem solved 🙂
Taste test: FANTASTIC!!! Mike even said he liked it sans the texture of the coconut, but I could hardly even feel the texture of the coconut. The cake was moist with a light coconut flavor. It was perfect 🙂 To make the cake pretty, I glazed it with a mixture of milk and powdered sugar. I mixed enough milk into the sugar so that it was thick and held a nice ribbon when dripping off the spoon.
