I’ve been making this cake every year for my mom’s birthday. She is a huge fan of all things coconut, and she always swears that this is the best coconut cake she has ever tried. The best part is that this cake is one of the easiest cakes to make and is much lighter than a typical slice of coconut cake, which can have as much as 500 calories a slice! This year, I decided to make this cake for Easter Sunday. Coconut is always a welcomed flavor when spring arrives, and the toasted coconut on top of the cake made a beautiful addition to the Easter table!
