TWD: Apple Coconut Family Cake


This week's TWD pick was by Amber of Cobbler du Monde who chose Apple-Coconut Family Cake, page 214 of The Book.

It's a basic apple cake with coconut added to it. It's not too sweet, which was a nice change from the cookies and chocolates which are in abundance around this time of the year. With 3 apples - chopped up and folded into the batter - it might even add up to a serving of fruit!

I was thinking how lucky we are to have so many apples in this cake.

Yours looks pretty. Do you have rasins in the cake. It looks like it. That would be a great addition.

I love cakes with apples in it; and you're right, we can convince ourselves that it's almost healthy :)
