Lemon Coconut Tea Cake TWD

Spring, don’t you just love it? Toronto is emerging out of winter and I couldn’t be happier, I am NOT a winter person. The temperatures are rising, the grass is greening and hope is in the air. I just can’t get enough of it. Since Claire, my sister and co-blogger, is in Jamaica I made this week’s TWD recipe (even though my term paper is due tomorrow!) I have to say I am glad I was ‘forced’ to make this one, it was delicious. And I made it spring like by adding lemon, spring is lemony, don’t you think?

Coconut Lemon Tea Cake

I made mine in multiple pans. I used my new heart shaped muffin tin (thanks Jenny!), some mini bundts and a 9 x5 loaf pan. You have just got to love a cake in multiple formats (I think that may be the librarian in me speaking!)  Another reason I liked this recipe was that it was quick and easy, very important at the end of the semester. This one gets two thumbs up from me. My faithful tester S. will get his tonight so we will see what he thinks. Thanks to Carmen of Carmen Cooks for picking this one, good call! Head on over to her blog for the recipe or check out another TWD baker.
