TIPS
I love to prepare this recipe with coconut oil vs. butter because it makes the cake so moist. If you use coconut oil, make sure it is in a soft form (not liquid). Sometimes coconut oil turns to liquid when the temperatures are hot. So if that is the case, cool it a bit in the frig until it is firm.
This cake is great as a dessert topped with vanilla ice cream. You can also enjoy it for breakfast topped with butter or honey!
