You must make this cake. Even if you don’t really enjoy apple cake or coconut. This cake is the bomb. It begins with a wonderful cake, moist and sweet with bits of coconut and pecans. Then it adds an extra step. When the cake comes out of the oven, you pour over a mixture of butter, buttermilk, whole cane sugar, and vanilla and let it soak in. The result? A caramel-like buttery outside everyone will fight for.

It’s meant to be served at breakfast,but it’s well suited for dessert. You’ll be glad you tried it.
