Diane's Almond Joy Cake
By Diane Hughes EricasMa
This one came from needing a cake for church pot luck. Having left over nuts and coconut in the freezer. And I love Chocolate and coconut together. We all loved it. I hope you do too.
Now I need to figure out how to change the date on my camera. Looks like I'm still operating in 2008.. LOL
One of my fondest memories of childhood is of the yummy chocolates that I enjoyed with a bottle (yes, bottle!) of Coke everyday after school. Almond Joys were a favorite, and one bite of this wonderful cake transports me right back to the 60's. Love it!
Janet got "Chocolate Covered Cherry Mice"
You observe situations before diving in, choosing words and actions wisely. You're the loyal friend and...TAKE THE QUIZ and find out what Halloween treat you are!
NOTE: if you can't find the duncan hines coconut cake mix try this; use a white or yellow cake and add a coconut pudding mix and 2-3 teaspoons of coconut extract. That has worked for several bakers posted in the comments. Good luck to all.
I do this as soon as I take my layers from the oven.
