Vegan Lemon Coconut Bundt Cake

Yes, I know, this picture sucks. Sorry, but the cake is so super moist and lemony and yummy, please get past the picture already and just make this cake. This was the cake that I made for my sisters birthday; and everyone loved it and was just all ape shit over how good it was.

This was a recipe straight out of the Veganomicon cookbook that I have told all of you to buy because it is awesome. This also means that I am not going to post the recipe because I don't want to break and copyright rules, and also because you should get off your lazy ass and go buy the book. So if you want the recipe, leave me a post with your email so I can first criticize you for not buying the book, and then just give you the recipe.

Also, just a little note to the woman who sat next to me on the orange line this morning. - We're all tired, we all stayed up to watch the Celtics, this does not give you the right to fall asleep on the train and continually smash your head into my shoulder as you nod off, over and over again. The continual pattern of your eyes getting heavy, you falling asleep, your body going limp and then your head slowly falling to the right, hitting my shoulder, and then you waking all dazed up not knowing where you are, got really really obnoxious the third time you did it. Just get yourself a big ass cup of coffee and wake up already.

So, if you want the recipe, send me a post.

Rating = So God Damn Good

I think it's a great picture! And I am with you on the lady sleeping next to you. Either grab some damn coffee OR copy me and wait until you get to work to fall asleep (a one hour nap did wonders)

I'm a sucker for all things lemon and you know that, my friend. Coconut is also a favorite of mine. I'd love to have the recipe. :

Well I would love to have the recipe too, but instead I decided to get the cookbook. All the stuff you post from there just looks too delicious and even though I am in now way a vegan, I am excited to try the recipes!

Sounds really good, I am looking for a cake to make for my son's first birthday (we just found out he is allergic to dairy) and I would really appreciate it if you could send me a copy of the recipe.

Would love, love, love a copy of your recipe. We went to a restaurant in Baltimore last night to celebrate my grandsons birthday and had their fabulous vegan lemon coconut cake. Best I've ever tasted. The recipe in your post is the only one that sounds like what we had. I may even buy the book if cake turns out well. Thanks.

You were nice enough to send me this recipe way back in July. I finally got around to making the cake,twice actually, in December. Both times it was a tremendous hit with everyone. Even my six year old grandson absolutely loves it. I am getting ready to make it again for my daughter's birthday. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Mary
