apricot coconut cake

The apricots this year have been extra-juicy and sweet, making them the perfect fruits to turn into a sweet cake for brunch or dessert. I’ve been buying buckets and buckets of apricots since they are one of Gabriel’s favorite fruits and have been turning them […]

It feels like I haven’t shared a dessert recipe on the blog in a while; not that I haven’t indulged in anything sweet since my last cake recipe, but I just haven’t photographed any of the desserts I’ve made lately. I wanted to make something special for […]
