vegan mofo bonus post: the cake is a truth!

October 10, 2011 at 5:57 am 8 comments

Two yummy cakes I’ve made over the past few months:

apricot buckle cake
Apricot buckle using apricots fresh off my tree in the mid summer month. Basic recipe by (edit) Terry Hope Romero or Isa Chandra Moskowitz.


Coconut cake with lemon curd filling and cream cheese frosting. Best cake I’ve ever made, hands down. This was the second year in a row I made it for my husband’s birthday, and it might just become a yearly tradition! If you want the recipe, just ask! The lemon curd is the real star. So tangy and refreshing! Luckily there is always some leftover to eat by itself.

Look at that. Two posts in one day! That’s some good making up for lost posts, man.

      I did make my own lemon curd, though I got the recipe online somewhere. I’ll find it and post the link!

    Lovely. Though I think I gained some weight just looking. 😉

      Yeah, Julie…the buckle isn’t that bad, but that coconut cake…no skimping on the fat there!

    I think the buckle is a Terry recipe! and you should mention that it’s from the pie book that came out today(even though it’s a cake)
