TWD-Lemon-Ginger and Lime versions of Coconut Tea Cake

This week's TWD recipe, Coconut Tea Cake, was chosen by Carmen who blogs over at Carmen Cooks. You can find the recipe on her blog. Or you can go to one of the links I have from when I made this recipe previously.
I have made this recipe twice before; I made mini lime bundt cakes and a regular sized Lemon-Ginger Bundt, both times because I had leftover coconut milk that I needed to use.
Basically, Dorie's book is the first thing I turn to if I need to bake something or if I have leftover ingredients that could be used for baking.

Both times I made this cake it was delicious. Both times I made a simple glaze.
It was a hit both times.

Check out the TWD Blogroll to see what other variations people made of this cake!

Today is my younger brother's 18th birthday and I am so thrilled that he is here with me to celebrate! I am going to bake him an awesome cake and we are going to have a fun day~ Happy Birthday Andrew!!!!

I love your little bundt cakes. This is one pan I don't have yet and I'm chomping at the bit to buy it!!! I think your addition of ginger is a great idea! Just started following you ;)

I thought this recipe was amazing. I used orange and ginger. The ginger was a subtle yummy flavor. I will make it again.
I'm always happy when I see your blog on my google reader.

A LATE comment! Ginger - what a great variation! I love it and had some in my fridge - I need to use more of it. The cakes look so wonderful - truly. Little cakes just have that adorable look to them. Great cake, i agree - one of my favorites!

Happy belated Birthday to your brother! And Happy Easter!
