Recipe Notes

My husband's favorite flavor!  

You can find Xanthan Gum practically everywhere now like Walmart, Whole Foods, Earth Fare and many regular grocery stores.  It makes the cake hold together better.  I've also made it without it.

This recipe… is for Ed.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

So, my husband loves all things coconut.  Coconut candy.  Coconut cookies.  Coconut cake.  Coconut itself.   He’s as crazy about coconut as I am about almonds.  

I decided that since we started this low carb life that I needed to find some things for coconut for him (and almonds for me) to enjoy.  Here is my first round with this cake recipe which is my combination of several recipes I found along with a family recipe.  It worked!

If you look at the picture, we couldn’t even wait for it to cool to get into it!  We put strawberries on top and ate it warm!  This is definitely going in the “FAVORITES” pile!

I am going to adjust this next to make it coconut AND almond.  Stay tuned, I’ll let you know how it turns out.  If I post the recipe adjustments, it turned out well.  If I don’t, then I am still at the drawing board!
