TWD - Apple Coconut Family Cake
This week's Tuesday with Dorie challenge, chosen by Amber of Cobbler Du Monde, was Dorie's Apple Coconut Family Cake. This cake and I were obviously meant for each other, because it gave me no problems whatsoever - which is the confidence boost I need after some of the kitchen tragedies I have had lately.
This cake is not dissimilar to Marie-Helene's Apple Cake that we made recently for French Fridays with Dorie, in that it is a sponge-like cake containing diced apples. However, it is a little fancier in that it contains coconut, and has a very pretty apple pattern on top glazed with apple jelly.
The cake itself is light and moist from the fruit, and would be perfect served warm with a little icecream on the side. Me, I just ate it plain:
Amber will have the recipe, and you can check out everyone else's take on this cake by visiting the TWD blogroll.
