I'm completely obsessed with coconut baked goods. This compiles a list of inspiring recipes that I have both tried and planned to try.
The Samoa - Measure out 2oz bourbon. Drink it. Nicely done! Okay, now measure out 2oz more of bourbon, plus 1oz cream, 1/2oz creme de cacao, 1/2oz egg white, and a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Shake it all w/ ice, then top with the namesake cookie and shredded coconut (toasting coconut with flame torchy thingy optional).
Thai Tea Cake with Creamed Coconut Frosting. This is the cutest cake ever, and the flavor combination is sinful!
Coconut Gooseberry Clafoutis, oh my!
Triple Coconut Cheesecake from The Novice Chef. I wasn't afraid to use five different coconut products in one recipe before and I won't be afraid to do it again. This looks utterly fluffy even below the coconut whipped cream. Edit: Completed! Came out amazing!
Coconut Rice Pudding. I had rice pudding for the first time in my adult life the other evening and was mesmerized. It was surrounded by freshly poured mango puree and topped with a dollop of ginger sorbet. What an explosion of sweet flavors! In my hunt for a recipe to recreate it, I came across this. Coconut! Perfect to match with a sweet mango puree, perhaps drizzle some on top!
