Torta de Dulce de Coco is one of my favorite desserts to make, and eat, when the weather starts to cool down. This Colombian dessert is a moist cake made with Dulce de Coco (Coconut and Milk Dessert) and Bizcochuelo (Sponge Cake). This Colombian Coconut Pudding Cake is originally from the department of El Valle, Colombia.
Torta de Dulce de Coco is sweet, rich and comforting, and is one of those desserts that makes a meal complete. It can be made 2 to 3 days ahead and stored in the refrigerator in an air tight container, so it's convenient when entertaining and you have a lot of cooking to get done. If you are looking for Thanksgiving or other holiday menu ideas, this cake might make a great addition to the festivities!
