TWD: Coconut Tea Cake

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie was the Coconut Tea Cake, chosen by Carmen at Carmen Cooks. I made it this morning not realizing it would take an hour in the oven (I know, I know. I usually do read ahead) so the girls and I had it for lunch instead.

The cake itself was a little on the bland side so I dressed it up a bit with a simple glaze and some shredded coconut on top. Even with a little almond extract in the glaze the flavors were still really muted, so I don’t think I’d serve this for dessert, though it is perfect with coffee or tea!

I didn’t do any of the extras though if I had a lemon I would have added some of that. Like Carmen, I also took mine out of the oven several minutes before the directions said to and even that may have been too long since it was a little on the overdone side.
