You know how it is when you are looking for a certain type of recipe with certain kinds of flavors. I just picked up some cherries at the market and I wanted a cake with cherries and coconut. Alas, I could not find what I was looking for. So I winged it and put together this recipe. It came out pretty good. It has a very tender crumb. I added red food coloring, figuring that would be a hit with the kids.
The top of cake turned a bit brown and tasted like toasted coconut.
