Christian requested a coconut cake for his birthday last week and I realized I had never made a coconut cake. We both grew up in coconut-loving families, so while I’ve eaten many a coconut cake and pie, this was my first stab at making one on my own. Luckily, this easy recipe was a big hit and I’ll definitely be using it again!
Note/confession: I made two 9 x 9 square cakes and layered them. I didn’t use the entire can of sweetened condensed milk and 14 oz. cream of coconut. I used more like 10 oz. of each and then used the leftover in my coffee for the following week. YUM.
So delicious! These photos are a little dark – I impatiently snapped a few because I needed a bite asap. Priorities. Thanks so much for reading and stay tuned for the winner of the Over the Moon giveaway! XO –
