Coconut = Love
Coconut soaked cake, topped with lemon curd, then whipped topping and coconut = how could you not love??
This was the dessert that I brought to my family Easter dinner. When I volunteered to bring a coconut dessert, a coconut poke cake kept popping into my head. But I wanted to take it up a notch, and since I’ve been obsessed with lemon curd lately, I thought that a layer of lemon curd would be the perfect addition. And I was right!!
If you have never had a poke cake before, you are in for a treat. Normally not a fan of soggy cake, it’s surprising that I love poke cakes so much. And this one is really moist. So moist, in fact, that it was almost difficult to keep this piece intact to take a picture of it. But I enjoyed every. single. bite.
