I'm in search of a good coconut cake recipe. I'm making my Grandmother's 80th birthday cake this weekend and want to be sure that I make something great. I've been using the WASC recipe and would modify it, but I'm not sure what all I'd need to change. If I subbed the milk for coconut creamer and used coconut extract would it give it enough coconut flavor? A few months ago I made a coconut cake and used Coco Lopez, but I don't remember what else I did to it. Any help would be great! TIA!!!
This is the one I use.
Coconut Cream Cake
1 box white cake mix
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup Coco Lopez
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 tsp. coconut extract
3/4 cup flaked coconut
Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. Bake at 325 until done. It may take longer than usual to bake.
I have a recipe for a 'Mounds Bar Cake" that is to die for!!! Everywhere I take it everyone wants the recipe.
1 yellow cake mix ( without pudding)
1 (3.4 ounce) package white chocolate or French vanilla instant pudding
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
1 (8 ounce) carton sour cream
8 snack size or 4 regular size Mounds candy bars, chopped
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts(if desired)
Combine cake & pudding mix, oil, water & eggs. Stir until most of lumps are gone. Stir in sour cream, then candy bars, chocolate chips, coconut and walnuts nuts. Pour into greased & floured bundt pan. Bake for 60 to 65 minutes at 350 degrees or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15 minutes before removing to wire rack.
I've never bake it in 8 inch pans but I'm sure you could.
My favorite is Ina Garten's coconut cake. It has buttermilk and is moist and yummy!
My favorite was Ina's too until I did Bobby Flay's Throwdown cake. Incredible. I now offer it in my bakery.
