TWD: Apple Coconut Family Cake

Oh yum!

Good thing my kids liked this cake...or I would have eaten the whole thing myself. And no, I didn't cut the recipe down. I made the full deal!

First off...I used sweetened coconut and toasted it. I like the flavor of toasted coconut better than the super sweet of untoasted.

I also omitted the rum, simply because I didn't have any. :)

Oh, and I used Granny Smith apples. No glaze on the top...just a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

There's not a huge coconut flavor in this cake..just a hint. Which is just enough.

Thanks Amber for your.....easy to put together in this crazy month...pick!

Stop by here to see the many variations.

Thanks for stopping by.

I thought of powdered sugar on top - I'm glad you did and it worked well! Your cake looks so lovely and high!
