While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Cure all your coconutty cravings - March 13 is National Coconut Torte Day!
Indulge in creamy layers of flavor with the ultimate sugar addict's dessert, the torte, and enjoy some sweet coconut on top.
Rich and built up of three or more layers of cake, tortes are known for the luscious fillings in between. Rather than flour, ground nuts or even breadcrumbs make up the base, along with sugar, eggs and intense flavorings.
Icing is often the focus and star of a good torte, especially coconut torte. Thick swaths of icing are slathered in between the cakey layers and then heavily garnish the top and sides as well. There is no escaping the fresh taste of flaky coconut in this dish.
Not enough for you? Serve your own coconut crunch torte with a scoop of ice cream to amp up the perfect meld of coconut and vanilla.
Clearly the coconut torte people didn't get the memo that it's International PI Day!
Check your date, Einstein.
Haha, didn't catch the coffee klatsch separator. I guess I was a little inattentive, but at least I'm not a rude.
droool Now if only I knew where to find one of those today.
Seriously? "Coconut torte day?" Now you're just making this stuff up.
