Jonesing for some Coconut Cake
I have had a major hankering lately for a nice big slice of coconut cake but don't know where to find an exemplary specimen (or any specimen for that matter). The last place I had a decent piece was at Dish in Red Bank over a year back. Subsequent visits back to Dish have revealed that the item is no longer available. I also have had a very good slice at At The Table in Asbury Park however I wasn't a fan of the pineapple jam used between layers. I'm looking for moist cake along with a fluffy white frosting and mounds of coconut shavings. I've come close to ordering this version (http://www.peninsulagrill.com/coconut...) online however spending almost $200 for a cake seems to be a little extreme even for me. Any advice would be appreciated.
I saw one at Sal's Pastry Shoppe in .. not sure if it's Jackson or Freehold.. you go down Jackson-Mills Rd until you come upon some shops.. it's on the left.
The banana cream pie looked really good, too.
bgut1, I know your pain, nothing like a good moist piece of coconut cake. This is not coconut cake but its the absolutely the best coconut cream pie and one of the best desserts I have ever had.
Its at The Ritz Seafood Grill in Voorhees (the seafood is excellent also). Its so good that the link to the restaurant includes lunch, dinner, directions etc and a separate link for the coconut cream pie.
Not close by but if your in that neighborhood :)
I, too, was longing for a good coconut cake. I saw a coconut cake by Paula Deene being offered on QVC. It was terrible.
Needless to say, I am still looking.
