Coconut Almond Cake

coconut almond cake

My cousin who lives in Campeche, Mexico gave me this recipe 20 years ago….not kidding.  She is an amazing cook and baker!  This is my first time making this recipe and oh why oh why did I wait this long to make it?!  Who knows, but it is heavenly!  I named it “Coconut Almond” cake, but you could call it “Coconut Pecan” cake since she used pecans and I used almonds.
