This recipe is as incredible as it is beautiful. It perfect to serve for Christmas or Easter or in between. I love to pair this dense and moist cake with a tangy and rich cream cheese frosting and fill it with pineapple curd. To make this recipe, you’ll need to buy one 15-ounce can of sweetened cream of coconut (not coconut milk), typically found in liquor section of most grocery stores.  SARAH SAYS: You can use eggs, butter and buttermilk right from the refrigerator.
