Coconut & Ginger Cake

August 19, 2013

Just Right

I have met various people who dislike coconut in various sweet snacks such as chocolate, and fried foods.  However, I believed I could convert these people by creating a cake which including coconut and other spices.  A cake which is seductive with hints of interesting flavours rather than an overpowering flavour of ginger or coconut.  The cake was a hit with non coconut eaters.  I really had to stop myself from picking at it.

This was adapted from 101 Cheap Eats (BBC Books, 2003).
