Coconut, unlike its name suggests is not a nut but the seed from a coconut palm. In Jamaica the white inner surface of the shell is grated and used for adding flavour to Rice and Peas, make desserts such as Grater Cake , Coconut Gizzada and Coconut Drops. The water inside the coconut is refreshing and has a slightly sweet flavour.

My husband and I love the taste of coconut, so I made us a special treat, a Coconut Bundt Cake and it was delicious. It was my first time making it and it turned out great, my family also enjoyed it and I especially love the bundt signature ring design.
