TWD Coconut Tea Cake

This weeks selection for Tuesdays with Dorie is Coconut Tea Cake and it was chosen by Carmen of Carmen Cooks. My apologies for the picture, this is a much prettier cake than my picture shows. I loved the texture of this cake. It is similar to a pound cake but lighter. It has a mild coconut flavor. I added the rum but I really couldn't taste it in the finished cake. The cake improves after sitting overnight. It become more moist and had a richer coconut flavor. I think that a lime glaze would be a great addition to this cake. If you are a coconut lover then this cake is for you.

im glad you liked the cake. It looks a lot like mine! I thought it was a bit dry and I wish I could taste the coconut more.

I'm really glad you enjoyed this cake. It looks just lovely. I made the mocha bundt this week because I was out of coconut milk. I love reading the posts for this cake because I'm getting some wonderful ideas.
