How To Toast Sweetened Flaked Coconut

Spring is the perfect time of year to feature coconut in a variety of recipes for special occasions. Right out of the package, stir it into cake batters, pastry cream or frosting for a distinctive flavor. But to really give your signature creations a lift, lightly toasting the coconut on a sheet pan in the oven is the way to go. It adds a rich nutty flavor plus a crisp component to an otherwise ordinary appetizer or dessert. Use the toasted coconut as an easy & pretty garnish. Sprinkle over tartlets, press into the sides of layer cakes or top a batch of indulgent cupcakes with it. Follow my tips for fool-proof results every time.
