This is a cake mix recipe. I've had my Gram's coconut cake for years and it's wonderful but takes a lot more effort that this quicker version. And the outcome is just as delish!
  • 1 pkg classic white cake mix
  • 1 3.4 ox pkg coconut cream instant pudding (dry)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 C water
  • ⅓ C canola oil
  • ⅓ C flaked coconut
  • Frosting:
  • 1 can classic vanilla frosting
  • 1⅓ C flaked coconut
  1. Preheat oven to 350•F. Grease and flour two 9" round cake pans or a 9 x 13" cake pan.
  2. Combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, water, and oil in a large mixing bowl. Beat at low speed with an electric mixer until moistened. Beat at medium speed for two minutes. Sir in ⅓ C coconut. Divide into round pans or pour into 1 rectangular pan.
  3. Bake at 350•F for about 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool.
  4. Mix frosting and coconut, reserving a few sprinkles of coconut. Spread frosting evenly over the layer(s). Sprinkle with remaining coconut. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
