Have you ever baked or made something that’s kinda fugly yet super delicious?
You feel me, right?
That’s this Coconut Crunch Cake. Fugly. But I love it. It’s like loving a Sasquatch.

A baby one.
This cake ain’t pretty.
I assure you, though – It is one of the best cakes you’ll eat this year. I promised myself I would photograph it and post it, regardless of looks. You need to know about it.

It starts with a sweetened flaked coconut mixed with melted coconut oil and spread on the bottom of a well-buttered bundt pan. The cake batter is amazing, yet simple. Coconut oil is mixed with butter for a nice, light coconutty taste. Sour cream and buttermilk give this cake tenderness and rise.

So what makes this cake fugly? Well… It’s the unmolding of this cake. It ain’t pretty. I tried more than once to unmold this cake intact; to umold it in such a way, the coconut crunch sits prettily on top of this cake. I tried to remove the coconut that gets stuck on the bottom of the bundt pan. It’s futile. Useless. Don’t even try. The coconut becomes crunchy and because of that blessed Maillard Reaction the coconut topping has a slight caramel flavor. Scrape that situation and place it ever so gently on top of the cake.
Then glaze that shit. And eat it.
