So I wrote yesterday about the coconut cake my wife made for my birthday, but I was writing from what it looked like and from reading the recipe. And after a big dinner last night (8 of us altogether!) I can speak from taste: this is the best coconut cake I've ever eaten. Maybe the best cake I've tasted, ever.
I don't say that easily. Coconut has long been (from childhood) a favorite of mine, and it remains so. This cake is moist, flavorful, and full of good coconut taste. Not a quick cake (as I pointed out yesterday, you have to start it 48 hours ahead of time!) but a good one. One that you make for an Occasion. A birthday, anniversary, or just when you want to show Somebody Special that you love them. Here's the recipe, again.
