Decadent Cream of Coconut Cake

Today is National Bundt Cake day, and it just so happens that I am a HUGE fan of Bundt cakes. They look so much prettier than a sheet cake, so people think you’re all fancy and everything. But you don’t have to deal with trying to split layers evenly and stack them without having them fall apart. (Am I the only one that struggles mightily with layer cakes?) So it’s a win/win. Everyone thinks you’re a baking queen, but you don’t really have to put forth a lot of effort. It’s perfect.
This coconut cake is brushed with a coconut glaze, then topped with coconut icing and toasted coconut. A decadent coconut dessert!Let’s talk about this coconut cake for a minute. Guys, it’s AMAZING! I adapted a favorite butter cake recipe to come up with it, and just crossed my fingers that it would turn out. Did it ever. It is rich and buttery, and full of coconut flavor. So delicious!
Recipe for triple coconut cakeThe warm glaze that you brush on the outside gives the cake a nice crunchy layer, then the inside is incredibly moist. It is the perfect addition. You don’t need much icing on the top, but I added some because I wanted something for the toasted coconut to stick to. Because hello. Toasted coconut. One of the most delicious things on the planet.
Triple coconut bundt cake- a moist and delicious cake that will wow your guests!If you know someone who loves coconut, you should definitely make them this cake. They will love you forever.
Best ever coconut cake! It tastes even better the second day.Every bite of this triple coconut cake is moist, delicious, and loaded with coconut flavor! You will love it!

I was in a hurry to take pictures, so the cake was still slightly warm when I cut it. That’s why it looks a little like a toddler attacked the middle. No one in my family complained though, they were too busy stuffing their faces. But if you do let it cool completely, your slices will be nice and straight.  And just as an fyi, it tastes even better the next day.

  1. Looks really good. Can you make ahead and freeze it?

    • I have never tried, but I’m not sure how it would work with the glaze, it might get soggy. If you do try, I’d recommend freezing with without the glaze and icing, then adding them before you serve it.
