Ever Heard of a Cupcaron?
Me neither and then I thought macaroon. So does this mean someone made a cupcake out of coconut macaroons? I used to eat the rainbow-colored macaroons when I was a child.
My grandpa ran a fishing pond and lake. At the concession stand, he had macaroons. I loved them! Such wonderful childhood memories.
Anyway…..years ago they had a candy made out of pressed coconut. That was my first time to taste coconut candy. Eventually I learned how to bake coconut macaroons.
I love coconut cake; however, my husband doesn’t. I don’t know many men who do like coconut. My husband says it is because of the texture. What? I don’t know about that. All I know is…….we cracked real coconuts with a nail and hammer to get the milk out. Then we would scrap the coconut out of the shell. My grandmother would make a coconut cake from scratch that was out of this world. I so wish I had the recipe or a video of her making the cake. She never measured anything. Just poured it into the bowl…..Out popped a cake!
