Coconut Cream Sheet Cake

I’m excited to be in charge of dessert for our Easter feast this year and by dessert, I actually mean desserts! I can’t think of a family gathering where we just had one dessert to choose from, so Easter will be no different. Everyone will show up knowing they’ll need to save room for desserts because we’ll have a spread of them!

Coconut cream pie has always been a family favorite for Easter so I decided to put a new spin on it and bake it into a cake since I’m planning to bake mini chocolate cream pies for Easter as well! And let me tell you, this cake turned out fantastic! I have no doubt it’s going to become a new family favorite that we’ll be baking for years to come.

The toasted coconut sprinkled over the creamy dreamy frosting brings even more flavor and beauty to this yummy cake.

Description

A moist Coconut Cream Sheet Cake using coconut oil, coconut milk and sweetened coconut flakes to make it extra coconut-ty and out-of-this world delicious!


Ingredients

Scale

Cake:

  • 21/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup coconut oil, melted & slightly cooled
  • 11/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 21/2 cups sweetened coconut flakes, divided

Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, not melted
  • 1 (8 ounce) cream cheese, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes, toasted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the melted and slightly cooled coconut oil together with the sugar until combined. Whisk in the eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated. Alternate stirring in the milk and dry ingredients until batter is well combined and smooth. Fold in the coconut.
  4. Pour batter into prepared baking dish and bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. With the oven still on, spread 1 cup coconut on a baking sheet and bake for 8-12 minutes or until it just starts to turn light shades of brown. Let cool while you prepare the frosting.
  6. For the frosting, beat the coconut oil and cream cheese together with an electric mixer or hand mixer until well combined. Add 2 cups powdered sugar and coconut milk, beating on low speed until combined. With the mixer still on low speed, gradually add the remaining 2 cups powdered sugar and then beat on medium-high speed until thick and creamy.
  7. Spread frosting evenly over cooled cake and sprinkle with toasted coconut.
  8. Note: Store cake in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Let come to room temperature before serving.

  1. Could I substitute the all-purpose flour with a gluten-free flour, i.e. coconut or almond? If so how much? Will that also change the amount of liquids?

    Thank you

    1. Hi Maria! You could substitute the all-purpose flour with an all-purpose gluten free flour without adjusting the recipe. Same with almond flour…it can be used in place of all-purpose flour at a 1:1 ratio. Substituting with coconut flour is a bit trickier and would require adjusting other ingredients in the recipe. I haven’t tested the recipe with coconut flour to say for sure. Hope this helps. Enjoy!
