Well, after trying to convert people to dulce de leche last week, this week's object is converting people to coconut. I'll admit, I hated coconut for a long time when I was younger. Then I had a coconut macaroon. Then Girl Scout Samoas. Then Almond Joy. I know the texture can be icky, but oh, the taste is so wonderful.
This week's pick, from Carmen Cooks is for Coconut Tea Cake. This cake is really moist, but pretty plain. No chocolate. No icing. No filling.
But Dorie suggests serving it toasted, which sounded pretty good to me. So I toasted slices in the oven and served it with vanilla ice cream. Yum.
