Coconut and Espresso Cream Layer Cake
Layers of cake permeated with coconut flavor are slathered with heady espresso and sweetened condensed milk whipped cream. Each bite is soft, rich, and luscious.
Note: I prefer Coco López brand cream of coconut for this recipe. Cream of coconut tends to separate. Prior to using, place it in a bowl and whisk it until smooth. If you can't find coconut sugar, palm sugar or light brown sugar can be used in its place.
