This cake is simply divine! It has 3 components, all of them delicious and all of them coconutty. A lovely sponge that melts in your mouth and defies the laws of physics (and possibly the laws of chemistry too), a luscious coconut glaze and a crispy topping. It’s flavorful, satisfying and not overwhelmingly sweet, so it’s perfect for breakfast or brunch. It’s amazing served with coffee or tea as a late-afternoon snack and it’s also delicious served as a dessert, simply because it’s a cake after all.
Why I love Coconut Cake:
- it has a lovely coconut flavor
- it has such an interesting texture, it’s extremely soft and tender
- it’s flourless, it has only to 2 Tbsp of corn starch, so it’s gluten-free
- it’s ready in 40 minutes
- and before I forget: it has a lovely coconut flavor
