coconut cake

    Newer Older

    It's funny because when my first book came out in 1999, the very first recipe said "I wish someone would make me one of these for my birthday." My best friend, "You know. You're going to now get them all the time for your birthday."

    Flash forward to ten years later and not ONE PERSON had made me this cake. Tonight is Romain's birthday so I made one for him. He doesn't know what coconut cake even is. *sigh*

    ...although he certainly deserves it for putting up with a lot! : )

      Hello, lover.

      I, too, have always wanted coconut cake for my birthday. It has yet to happen.

      I want to at least taste it once... Where can I find the recipe? I guess not in the "Paris cookbook" ?

      One of my favorites, but never had it served to me for my birthday. I guess because I am the baker in the family.

      Aww David Romain sure is lucky! You know I got your cookbook recently for my birthday and only wish I could send it to you to sign it!

      I want that for my birthday too! I turned 29 two weeks after I had my daughter (via C-section, with tough recovery) and I dragged myself out of bed to make myself amazing coconut cake. Show yourself the love!

      Happy Birthday Romaine. That's a gorgeous cake & a beautiful picture. I had so much to say but chanced upon your twitter profile ... 'Unfollow me now. Or forever hold your peace.'...
      Sigh! I'd better keep quiet!

      Bon Anniversaire, Romain!

      Looks scrumptious! Five years since I moved to the US and I've never had Coconut cake. Sad!!

      I would never complain about repeating coconut cakes. I have to make them infrequently, because I would eat the whole thing.

      The Toasted Coconut is nice touch! I can't wait to make this cake! Made your Pecan Meringues last night with whites left from my maiden Crème Brûlée voyage. Both were a huge success. Thanks for the fantastic Meringue recipe!
