Ok. See? Freaky pictures.
Pretend to ignore and we can be friends. It gets better, I promise.
I'm feeling a little bit lost with no holidays to prepare for. Halloween through Easter has been a whirlwind of baking and trying to cram in everything I want to make and now my baking schedule is completely free until the 4th of July comes around. It's a nice feeling actually. I get to wrack my brain for delicious treats to invent instead of plowing through the 3 pages of bookmarked recipes on my computer.
This baby is a cake I make every year around Easter and it is the moistest cake everr. It is a poke cake, drizzled with cream of coconut and has a fantastic coconut flavor. It needs to be eaten within 2 days because it is so moist, but you shouldn't have problems getting rid of it.
Just to be clear, Cream of Coconut is that sweet syrupy stuff, often found in a can, over on the mixers aisle (by the soda). Look for Margarita mix and it's probably sitting on the shelf next to that. I have yet to find a store that doesn't carry it, sometimes you just have to poke around a little bit. Coconut milk, or Coconut Cream (non-sweetened) are NOT the same and will not yield the same results. The brand I buy is Coco Lopez. Check the back. If there are a bazillion-ty calories in 2 Tbsp, and sugar is one of the first ingredients, you've got the right stuff. Cream of Coconut is a great way to add a strong coconut flavor without adding gritty chunks of coconut to whatever you are baking!
