Citrus Coconut Milk Cake

I went over to a Christmas gathering last month at my friend James' house. He had a boatload of kumquats from Jeff's grandpa's backyard. So I basically went home with my own little boatload 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 make kumquats taste more like kumquat in baked goods.

This is a super moist cake that is jam-packed with cheerful orange flavor. You can't help but smile while eating it. :) Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
