Happy Easter Coconut Cake & No Hashbrown Casserole

>> Monday, April 13, 2009

This is not a picture of Hashbrown Casserole. It is a picture of a coconut layer cake based on this recipe from Alton Brown with a standard (meaning not coconut flavored) seven minute frosting. This cake did not contain fresh coconut in any form, nor did it contain coconut extract. Free tip - substituing canned coconut milk for coconut water in seven minute frosting doesn't work. Another free tip - vague memories of purchasing some kinda extract that may or may not have been coconut will not make coconut extract miraculously appear in your cabinet. Thank you.

It was pretty good a couple of hours after it was made but was fan-freakin-tastic the day after. I highly recommend making this the day before you wanna eat it because otherwise it might not seem worth the effort.

This is also not Hashbrown Casserole but it is instead our family standard Sweet Potato Stuff. It's made from roasted sweet potatoes that are peeled then roughly mashed with butter and a little salt and topped with copious amounts of tiny marshmallows and pecans then drizzled with maple syrup and warmed until toasty. Diabetics and those with weird dessert masquerading as side dish phobias need not apply.

If for some odd reason you came here to see Hashbrown Casserole, might I suggest that you go here instead.
