Vegan Dessert Recipes: Coconut Cake

In the Asia-Pacific region, coconut is called “the tree of life”. From housing materials to novelty items, to oil, and food production, every part of the palm tree has its own use and commercial value. Around the world, coconut water, meat, milk, and oil are used in many dishes and desserts.
