Coconut Cream Cake

Hi there Capturing Joy readers! I’m Gina & I blog over at Kleinworth & Co, where I share easy DIY projects, fun crafts with the kids & a whole lot of recipes. I’m absolutely thrilled that Kristen invited me to share her space today. I have been a Capturing Joy reader for a really long time & it’s so much fun to now be here sharing a little bit of me with you all today.


Coconut Cream Cake

I have a passion for making goodies…..and then sharing them on my blog. Like most I create what I crave – many times those things end up being either pineapple or coconut. Sometimes both. But for the longest time I have been craving a coconut cake. When I say a long time, I’m talking probably over a year now. But so many other recipes end up making their way on to the priority list & the months went on by. So one day I finally decided it was TIME!

Coconut Cream Cake

The wonderful flavor of light & fluffy white cake with sweetened coconut mixed in is enough to make me swoon. But then to drizzle cream of coconut on & top with whip cream & toasted coconut, well, it’s like heaven on a plate for a coconut lover like myself.

Because this is baked in a 9×13 pan it makes a great dessert to bring to a backyard bbq or church potluck. It was gone in a flash & I have made several more since then. Yep – it’s a hit! If you are looking for something quick, easy & delicious – this is your cake!

So, I’m curious, what’s your favorite cake flavor?

Coconut Cream Cake


1 box white cake mix + ingredients it calls for (eggs, oil, water)

1/2 cup sweetened coconut

1 cup cream of coconut

8 ounce tub whip topping – thawed

1 cup toasted coconut


Prepare cake batter to package directions & stir in 1/2 cup sweetened coconut

Bake in 9×13 pan to package directions

Remove from oven & immediately use a thin wooden dowel or chop stick to poke holes in the cake (about 2″ apart)

(some like to use the handle of a wooden spoon but I prefer something thinner than that.)

Drizzle cream of coconut over the top of the cake & place in refrigerator to chill

Once cake is cold top with whip topping in a smooth even layer

Sprinkle with toasted coconut & a little extra sweetened coconut if desired

Thank you so much for spending some time with me today! I have loved getting to know you better!
