Coconut Lemon Bundt
This is my 3rd of 52 desserts/baked goods project* this year. My kids love digging around in the kitchen cabinets and one of them unearthed this awesome yellow bundt pan that I forgot I had. I’m pretty sure it’s my mothers but I’ll be keeping it up by me forever. :)
Reno and I are huge fans of lemon cakes so that was our obvious flavor when deciding what to make next. I’m already a fan of Meet The Shannon’s Tuscan Lemon Cake after making it myself and eating it at many potlucks. I leafed through some cookbooks and settled on Veganomicon’s Coconut Lemon Bundt Cake.
It’s a great recipe. It bakes up beautifully and has the perfect balance of lemon and coconut. Everyone who tried it had nothing but praise for it and all hope I make it again. Reno didn’t care for it. I think the texture of the coconut threw her off. My only problem with the whole process was getting it out of the pan which has nothing to do with the recipe. We oiled that bundt pan up like crazy and as you can see some of the top stayed in the bundt pan. Lesson learned…oil and flour the bundt pan next time!
*Yes this is the 3rd thing I’ve baked and it’s already the middle of February. I’m a bit behind, as usual, and am looking forward to doubling up on the baking/dessert front these next few weeks. Expect to see a bunch of Gluten Free desserts (and food) for a bit. We think our daughter is having trouble with consuming gluten and have taken it out of her diet. She’s doing great without it! Less screaming about bellyaches and she’s eating much healthier. It’s a win-win. She’s been asking for corn bread so expect to see a post on that soon!
