Cuckoo for Coconut

Inspired by the Birthday Fiesta in this cute gal's blog, I was moved to buy sweetened flaked coconut, buttermilk and break out the sifter. My parents were on their way to visit and, well, what a better time to hang out and eat cake?

This is what happens when one has been dieting for far too long


Buttery whipped-ness!


The AGA succeeds once again!


Voila!


And, it tasted sooooooo good. Dense, decadent, creamy....just perfect.


I'd be lying if I said I wasn't considering just a wee little small sliver for breakfast. Mmmm, coffee cake.

Here's the recipe if you are as inspired as I was to re-embrace your love for coconut! xo

What a beautiful cake! I'm impressed. Michael would have loved that. He was a big fan of anything coconut.

Can you pass that through the screen, please? :-) Saw this mentioned on the CCCOE thread, and had to come visit - yummy! Love the oven too.

OK, I am in LOVE with your AGA. We purchased a "pro" cooktop and I could not be more unimpressed. I have been researching the AGA's and was so stoked to see you have one! Do you just love it??

The coconut cake looks all kinds of YUMMY!
