it was a nice try

I thought I’d share what that coconut lime cake I planned to make a few weeks ago ended up becoming.

Here’s what happened:

First, I had no limes. So I used lemons.

Then I forgot to buy shredded coconut.

And then I realized I had no sugar. So I used agave nectar.

I followed a vegan coconut lemon cake recipe (it looked the easiest/fastest)…to which I added an egg. And then I baked it.

So no surprise when the cake came out tasting just barely OK. I deemed it a bread, and not a cake, for lack of sweetness. It sat there more or less untouched for the better part of two days before I decided to do one last thing to it to make it more exciting. I turned it into bread pudding.

Et voilà! Delicious eggy warm toasty mildly sweet lemony bread pudding. Even better with a scoop of ice cream on top.

Too bad I’m still craving a coconut lime cake. To be continued.
