Airy, sweet, and a delicious coconut flavor. A perfect way to describe these cakes. These coconut cakes melt on your tongue.
My husband is not a coconut lover. He prefers not to eat anything with coconut by his own choice. So he wasn't cheering when I offered to make these. But tough as he is, he tried anyway, and these cakes ... they got the benefit of the doubt.
Shame about the hint of coconut he said, but so nice and airy that he did take two. Victory for the coconut I would say so. I thought it was a big cookie itself more than a real cake. But size doesn't matter anyway.
