Pentecost Dessert

This year we celebrated Pentecost with a coconut cake topped with raspberries and whipped cream. 

I used Bob's Red Mill Coconut flour, since that's what they carry at my grocery store, and it's much more yellow than the brand I usually use. The recipe called for maple syrup as a sweetener, but I used honey this time, so we had a lovely yellow, instead of white, cake that was reminiscent of a honey-soaked baklava! Yellow-ness aside, I thought it was wonderful.

I also sweetened the whipped cream with Stevia liquid instead of sugar. My kids sometimes complain about unsweetened whipped cream, so I compromised. I didn't hear any complaints----probably because they know it's futile, not because they were content. ;-)

Happy birthday to the Church!
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.
V. Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created.
R. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
