White Chocolate Coconut Cake for Easter (Gluten-Free)

 

White Chocolate Coconut Easter Egg Cake; 2015 Jane Bonacci, The Heritage Cook

 

Easter is one of my favorite holidays. That rascally Easter Bunny is known to deliver a treasure-trove of goodies to children across the country. When I was young I would carefully boil the eggs and color them, set them in my Easter basket, and add a few carrots to say thank you.

Then my brothers and I had fun finding all the hidden colored eggs.

When the weather turns cold, I look forward to the colors and aromas of autumn and winter. I love the cozy evenings by the fireplace and pulling on sweaters to ward off the chill. The smell of cinnamon and ginger and hearty filling meals that warm up the coldest days. It is the perfect time to head to the kitchen and get creative with seasonal fruits. This year we have had more than our share of the cold weather, but before the pears and apples completely disappear from the market, make this cake – you’ll be glad you did!
