I had a request for a coconut cake that doesn't have any coconut in it. Any ideas? Thanks.

No flavoring or shredded coconut? Maybe they meant the shape of a coconut.

Wow, that's just a little confusing. Why would someone want a coconut cake w/out any coconut?! That's so backwards! If you are a box mix person, I know that Duncan Hines sells an coconut cake. Or what about using coconut flavoring/extract in your normal white cake recipe? To add extra coconut flavor to the overall cake, you could add some extract into your frosting as well.

I made a coconut cake using Loranns flavoring. I used an entire bottle and still could not taste the coconut. So you might need to use quite a bit.

I'm guessing they don't want the texture of shredded coconut, just the taste?

See if you can find the Coffee-Mate coconut creme flavor

I've used that in icing to get a light coconut taste and it was very good. Perhaps you could use coconut milk in the cake recipe to replace the water and the creamer in the icing?

just add coconut extract to your favorite white cake recipe. i wanted a lot of coconut taste and i just couldn't get it with coconut cream, milk, or cream of coconut alone.

after trying about a bazillion coconut cakes (i didn't want coconut on the outside or texturing the inside so it was a search because they seem to have coconut pressed on the outside to give it the flavor) my tasters all thought the original WASC cake with coconut extract was the best (and i like to bake from, oh well).

they also liked the shubox coconut cake, but i don't have the link to that right now. this one has a very subtle coconut taste. i will see if i can find it and post back.

I am assuming they didn't want the texture of coconut in the cake. I will look for the creamer. If not, then I will try the coconut flavoring. Thanks.
