Coconut Cake or Macaroons For Easter

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!!!

We’re finding that they’re becoming increasingly popular as more and more people are eating gluten-free. We posted your kind words to our Facebook and Pinterest pages with a link to your blog post. We hope that y’all will come visit again! :)

  3. I have found most people have a love-hate relationship with coconut. I love anything with coconut in it – candy – cakes – pies. I even like coconut doughnuts! These cookies sound delicious!

  4. Southern, would you believe I’ve never seen frozen coconut although maybe it is because I wasn’t looking for it. I like to make macaroons and then dip the bottoms in dark chocolate.

    • Karen: Bird’s Eye has frozen coconut and here in North Carolina it is available at Walmart. I love macaroons and that sounds wonderful. I have a great macaroon story to share next week. Happy Easter to you and I hope you enjoy your celebrations too.
