Coconut Pecan Cake


Long story short... I didn't have apples so this is just a small coconut cake with a few pecans added in. I'm in new jersey with no cake (although I do have a few molasses cookies). I had a small bite before I left and thought this was a decent cake but probably would have been a whole lot better with a few apples thrown in.

Later this week christmas cooking and baking begins! If you have a cookie or dessert to recommend-m leave me a comment. I'd love to try a few new recipes this year.

Want to try the recipe as written? Check out Amber's of Cobbler du Monde blog.

I made a oatmeal cookie with cranberries and white chocolate that was super delish. It had just the right amount of sweet and tart. Can't wait to see what you bake up.

This looks great! Coconut and pecans are one of my favorite combinations.

Mmmm, pecans! :) I've got several Christmas cookie recipes on the site that I've made in the last few weeks - namely the Soft & Chewy Gingerbread Cookies. My new favorite!

It's cute! I didn't make it, so you did better than I did, even with no apples.

I just posted some links to goodies that I made to give away this year: http://jillbert.wordpress.com/2010/12/13/cinnamon-almonds/ They were all popular with my friends!

I didn't get to make this one, but was feeling iffy about the coconut/apple combo anyway. Love the idea of just leaving out the apples.
Happy Holidays to you!
