Mini Coconut Cakes

These mini cakes have a soft, spongy texture, are good with tea, but their distinct coconut flavor always transports me somewhere exotic and makes me crave a Dark and Stormy, so feel free to serve them with cocktails too. You can spoon the batter into molds if you prefer, but it's faster and easier to do a clean job with a piping bag.
