The most AMAZING Coconut Cake with layers of soft coconut cake, pineapple filling, and topped with coconut cream cheese frosting. The assembled cake is somewhat of a masterpiece, and could be one of my favorite cakes of all time!
I’ve reached food nerd status by how happy this Coconut Cake makes me. It’s incredible! Dare I say it–it’s on the same level as my Mom’s ridiculously amazing German Chocolate Cake. It’s that good.
The cake is incredibly moist (I hate that word, but it must be used here), and not overly sweet, which I really love because it blends so well with the flavors from the pineapple filling and frosting, without any one element being too sweet. Also, you can make the cake, filling and frosting in advance.
