Coconut cake is something I make each spring. I find coconut gives you that vibrant flavor of being in the tropics. Once the sun begins to shine after a long and cold winter, I reach for my tried and true coconut cake recipe to brighten up my day and please my taste buds.

I have even made this for Easter in the past and let me say not even a crumb gets left behind.

Why does this get the name of the best coconut cake recipe? Well, I use a mix of all-purpose flour and coconut flour. This duo right here works magically for this recipe.

You can make this coconut cake into cupcakes! Just put a liner in a muffin tin and scoop your batter about 2/3rds full. Bake at 350 degrees for around 13-18 minutes or until you stick a toothpick in center of the cupcake, and it comes out clean.

If you wanted to make a two-layered cake out of this recipe, you would just double the recipe. Since it bakes an 8×;8 cake, it wouldn’;t be enough alone to make a double layered cake. But increasing the recipe can help you to achieve that.

I find this coconut cake does best when refrigerated. If you want, you can always bring it back to room temperature before eating it. This will help preserve the cake, and it won’;t spoil as fast. The cake will taste best if served within three days.

Absolutely! You can freeze your coconut cake. Just bake and prepare the cake according to the recipe. Then wrap the cake in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place in a freezer bag or airtight container. Then store for up to 3 months in the freezer.

I love slicing up the cake ahead of time, and then freezing single servings of the cake. When I get a sweet craving, I pull out one slice and keep the rest frozen! It makes for the perfect quick snack when I want homemade coconut cake.

I have not tried that out for this recipe. I find the coconut milk in this recipe is a crucial component, as it gives more coconut flavor and creaminess to the cake. If you were to substitute cow’s milk for coconut milk, it could change the consistency of the cake.

Over the weekend I put the finishing touches on my Christmas table setting. I enjoy setting tables for entertaining – simple, nothing elaborate, but always festive.?? I use white dishes, but change the items I use with them every year.? This year I used touches of turquoise, greenery, and glitter. (Check out how I decorated the table other years here?and?here.)
