As a pre-teen, I would visit my sister, Bitsy, and her husband, Jeff, during the summer. The ten year age difference had me spell-bound by her mastering of being a wife and homemaker. This was one of the first entrees I perfected. It’s delicious!
A Southern classic and our December Cake of the Month, the Coconut Cake uses both coconut extract and coconut milk. Instead of sprinkling the coconut on top, I like to mix it into the cream cheese icing. Keep this cake refrigerated and note that it may be good cold but it’s amazing at room temperature.
