I just finished reading a book called The Coincidence of Coconut Cake, by Any E. Reichert. This was one of the books that came up in my BookBub alert. If you love reading, and don’t enjoy purchasing a $10 – $20 book every time, I would recommend signing up for Bookbub. It gives you weekly recommendations, via e-mail, to a limited-time of free and discounted ebooks, matching your interest. My profile shows that I like foodie books and romance, so The Coincidence of Coconut Cake was spot on! The book had me wondering what this coconut cake looked and tasted like. There were a few times that the smell and appearances of it were described, which seriously left my mouth watering with a serious craving for coconut. I was so excited to see that the recipe was provided at the end of the book! If I were reading a paperback, I probably would have noticed all along that the recipe was there. I was excited to find that I was only missing a few ingredients that the recipe called for. I ended up making it over the weekend; on a day we were barbecuing. It made the perfect backyard BBQ dessert. We were all cracking up that we were eating this beautiful homemade cake, for no reason. No birthday, no celebration, just an extravagant coconut cake, just because. Why not? And, I’d do it again, it was that good. I was thinking next time I could divide the batter into cupcake tins, and bake delicious, delightful, coconut cupcakes. Yum!
So, would I recommend the book? Yes
Would I recommend the recipe? Yes, yes, yes!
