I use unsweetened coconut milk for Nestle's great Vanilla-Macadamia Nut Fudge ..... it's sooooooooo good. And it started me looking around the 'net for coconut milk recipes.
Here's one that I have not tried but I will be doing it soon. Doesn't it sound easy and great?
LEMON COCONUT CAKE WITH LEMON GLAZE
1 package (2-layer size) lemon or yellow cake mix
1 tablespoon lemon extract
Lemon Glaze (recipe follows)
1/4 cup flaked coconut, toasted
PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Beat cake mix, coconut milk, eggs and extract in large bowl with electric mixer on low speed just to moisten. Beat on medium speed 3 minutes.
POUR into greased and floured 10-cup Bundt pan.
BAKE 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Invert cake onto wire rack. Cool completely. Drizzle with Lemon Glaze. Sprinkle with toasted coconut. Let stand until glaze is set.
Lemon Glaze: Mix 1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar, 1 tablespoon water and 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract in medium bowl until smooth. If necessary, stir in 1 to 3 additional teaspoons water until glaze is of desired consistency
