Recipe for German Chocolate Ring

For those who requested the recipe in my last post, click here.

Below is a photo of my coffeecake.  I did not use coconut, because I didn’t know if people would like that.  I happen to love coconut, but most folks either like it or hate it.

    1. We used to get a fresh coconut every year at Christmastime. It was a bit troublesome, but we knew to drain the milk and keep it for something or other. Maybe putting pieces in the microwave loosened the white part. I don’t remember the details, but there are probably directions galore now. It was worth it to us at the time.

      1. I think I tried with one once and didn’t quite get the knack of it. I’ll have to try once again when I see them. If I remember, it was very difficult to grate…the microwave idea is a good one.

      The key to cracking a coconut and removing the meat is simply to refrigerate the coconut for one hour before cracking it open. This will make the entire process easier. The shell will break easily and the flesh will separate from the shell without you having to wrestle with it!

      Another way to easily remove coconut meat is to put the halves of the opened coconut in the microwave and heat on the high setting for about two minutes. After that, the meat will come away easily from the shell.

      Prefer not to use a microwave? Just eat your oven to 350°F. Place the opened coconut halves on a baking tray, open ends facing down and cook for 10 to15 minutes. Allow them to cool after this and the flesh will peel away easily from the shell.

      Other articles tell how to drain the coconut and break it apart. Good luck!

    1. I agree with you, Marcia. I like coconut most of the time. I don’t want to eat it if I know I can’t get to a toothbrush whenever I want. Have you ever had a second meal of coconut shards that lasted six hours between your teeth?
