My great-grandmother was famous for making her coconut cake around Christmas. This year, I decided to carry on that tradition.
This recipe isn't Mommom Rita's, but it's her style of cake which includes walnuts in the batter.
* *If you don't have buttermilk on hand try using 1/4 cup white vinegar and 3/4 cup milk. Let sit 5 minutes before putting it in the batter.
