I went over to a Christmas gathering last month at my friend James' house. He had a boat load of kumquats from Jeff's grandpa's backyard. So I basically went home with my own little boat load of kumquats. As a courtesy I basically had to turn these kumquats into something to bring back to James for gifting me with so many kumquats.
I basically took a coconut milk recipe I had always enjoyed and citrus-sided it. I added a lot of lemon and orange elements to the cake as well. For some reason beyond me lemon and orange makes kumquats taste more like kumquat in baked goods.
