When I think of Easter, I think of coconut. Maybe it is because I am Southern and many of our special occasions must include a coconut cake or pie. When I eat a dessert that includes coconut I am so glad that I like it. For some reason this week, I started to think about coconut macaroons. I have never made them but I do love to eat them. I saw the two easy coconut recipes I am sharing with you today in my recipes I have collected over the years from watching the Betty Feezor Show on TV.
The coconut macaroons would be something a little unusual to serve for an Easter gathering. If you are not a seasoned cook, the recipe for the coconut cake would be a great one to try as you use a cake mix and frozen coconut. I have eaten this cake many times and it is absolutely delicious.
Here is the recipe for the coconut cake and I am not sure you would actually call it a fresh coconut cake because you are using frozen coconut.
Betty Feezor was such a great Southern cook and she inspired me and gave me confidence that I could cook. When I am feeling a little uninspired about cooking, I can return to her cookbooks and find many options to motivate me to cook something special.
By the way, have you noticed I never write about California? Well, it isn’t very Southern for sure but I enjoyed both of my visits to the Los Angeles area and I think San Diego is just one of the most beautiful cities ever. I ate the best coconut macaroons ever at the Solvang Bakery in California. Here is a link to their website and it just made my mouth water to see all of the goodies they have and I did not realize you could order the macaroons on line. Oh My!!!
Thanks for stopping by.
