I’m a big coconut fan. I am half Grenadian, so I think it’s in my blood. I love the subtly sweet taste of coconut cake as well as its richness. This recipe uses both coconut milk and sweetened desiccated coconut for a double dose of flavor—no coconut extract needed. I’m crazy about it and I have managed to convert many coconut haters with this delicious cake. If you’re making one of the novelty cakes, use the pan sizes and baking times specified in the novelty cake recipe.
*Note: This recipe makes enough batter for three 8 round cake pans or approximately 6 lbs of batter.*
