twd ~ Coconut Tea Cake
After my mom's birthday this weekend, I'm all caked out. But I still had to make this one. It's coconut, and Dorie gave a "Playing Around" option to add spices. So I made it tonight before I went to kickboxing class, and had a piece when I got home.I'm planning on eating this as a breakfast loaf. I can't wait to try it with strawberries tomorrow morning. It is a bit dry and not too sweet, which is why I would never make it just as cake. Pecans would be a good addition. The top has a lovely golden crunch to it. I love the added black pepper, cardamom, ginger, and cinnamon. The spices aren't overwhelming as I thought they might be. The coconut milk still comes through in a subtle, addictive way. All in all, a great pick by Carmen of Carmen Cooks.
