I guess it’s just a coconut kind of week around here. Between the Coconut Sugar Scrub and this Coconut Sheet Cake, maybe my brain and kitchen are already on vacation!
This is one of those cakes that is for people who don’t like to make things from scratch — people like my mom. I made this cake for my Mom on Mother’s Day by her request. And when I say request, I mean she handed me the old recipe card and said “Make me this!”.
This cake is actually one of her favorites and is written down on a recipe card from the 90’s by an old neighbor (Hi Miss Roni!). It’s like those crockpot recipes that no one wants to admit loving…it’s a can of this, a can of that and a box of cake, but the finished result is delicious.
Once it is all put together, you would never guess that this was such an easy (from a box!) cake! It’s very reminiscent of a Tres Leches cake with the liquids, but a much more fun flavor.
If you are looking for an easy cake that is still impressive, give this Coconut Sheet Cake a shot! It only takes about 10 minutes of total work from you…including the dishes. 😉
