VERY MOIST!!! Calling all coconut cake lovers! This one is for you! The secret to this cake is the use of frozen coconut (because of its wetness), the blend of sour cream and the required refrigeration time. Also, the use of the 'real butter' yellow cake mix, not a white cake mix. A true winner for flavor and moistness. My granddaughter requested a coconut cake for her birthday. I remembered that this was the popular recipe my mother used in the 1960s for her coconut cake. To get the best flavor it is required to let the cake "mellow" in the refrigerator at least a day before cutting and the longer, the better it gets. Therefore, patience is required. It has been known to be called "The 3 Day Coconut Cake". May be kept refrigerated up to one week. I normally use 2 square 8x8 cake pans for prettier slices and trim the brown off of the outer cake edges after cooling. Makes a great presentation for a birthday cake celebration. Time stated for recipe does not include refrigeration time.
This is my "summer Tiramisu" The original recipe uses one packet of sponge fingers, but I use more to get more coverage on this size of tin. I also added the lemon zest and find it is not too tart, you can leave it out of course if you are not sure about it. You don't have to make this in a spring form pan, if you like to scoop it out of a dish, use whatever suits you. I sometimes use trifle sponges or plain cake instead of the sponge fingers. Oh... the lemons are low fat and very healthy!
I love bundt cakes because they are so easy to serve. I found this recipe on a camping website and adapted it for use in the home kitchen instead of on the camp fire! It comes out great and it will be the easiest pineapple upside down cake you'll ever serve!
This is such a wonderful cake! Moist and a wonderful banana flavor that is perfectly coupled with the cream cheese frosting. Not too sweet, not overpowering and perfects with time. This makes a VERY impressive 3 layer cake! I used 100 proof Banana Liqueur. My three layers were done at about 25 minutes. Plan to make the cake one day in advance and store covered in refrigerator overnight for the best results. Enjoy!
This is a nice and refreshing quick bread loaf. It is perfect for gift giving or enjoying with your afternoon tea, and it freezes well too. It is one of my top sellers at our local Farmer's Market. Give it a try...I'm sure you will enjoy it.
I found this recipe on the internet. This stuff is great. It makes a perfect holiday treat (Halloween, THanksgiving, Christmas.) If needed you can freeze the bread ahead of time. By the time you get to your party, it'll be ready to serve.
