Rhubarb & Coconut Cake

JENNIFER CONGDON’s farm, Woodstock, has been in her family for several generations. Her connection to and passion for its history led her to publish a book about the property, Woodstock: Farm, food and family. Inside she shares the history of the farm and the people who made it their home and the food they enjoyed. We couldn’t resist sharing this delicious cake.
