Coconut rum cake?
Does anyone have a recipe for a great coconut rum cake that's like a pound cake with a glaze? I'm NOT looking for a light and fluffy layer cake with frosting. I know I've had this more than once, most recently at a local taqueria, but I can't find an online recipe close to what I'm looking for. It should be a single layer cake, somewhat dense, and glazed, not iced or frosted. There is one from Goumet a few years ago that looks close, but it has a cream cheese icing.
there's a delicious coconut rum pound cake in "desserts by pierre herme." it calls for coriander but you can leave that out and just have the classic flavors. dense and tender with strong coconut flavor and a rum soaking syrup.
