Not a Baker? Here's an Option



This cake is well worth the effort making it all from scratch, however you have options.


You can use a coconut cake mix or white cake mix to package instructions.


If you can't find a coconut cake mix, just add some coconut extract to the white or even yellow cake mix.


Then add a little flaked coconut to the cake mix and proceed with the package instructions for ingredients and baking.


You can also substitute the pudding for coconut cream instant pudding or boxed cooked pudding.


Lastly you can top this with a whipped topping with toasted coconut.

Too Much Cake?



If this cake is too large for your family like mine, make two square pans, freeze one.


Use two 9 x 9 disposable pans instead of 13 x 9 inch pan.


This cake freezes great and you will have an extra dessert for surprise guests that visit!
