About This Easy Coconut Cake Recipe
This easy coconut cake comes together in just 5 minutes, using two bowls and a whisk. That’s right! You don’t need a stand mixer to make the cake batter (although you will need one for the frosting). The cake is made in an 8-inch square pan and contains shredded coconut AND coconut milk to make it extra flavorful. The cake is then topped filled with lemon curd and topped with a silky, creamy American coconut buttercream frosting.

Why You Should Make The Recipe
Here are all the reasons to make this easy coconut cake recipe:
The recipe comes together quickly.
The cake batter comes together in just 10 minutes, with just two bowls and a whisk and/or rubber spatula. No stand mixer required! Simply whisk together the dry ingredients, then the wet ingredients. Then, combine everything together. That’s it!
The coconut cake stores well.
Because of both coconut milk AND coconut oil in the batter, the cake contains a lot of moisture. That means it stays fresh and moist for days! In fact, I think that the cake even tastes better the day after it’s made. Why? The coconut flavors become more pronounced and obvious!

NO TIME TO BAKE?!
Over the past several years of running Hummingbird High, I kept a crucial aspect of my life hidden from my readers: I had a full-time, extremely demanding job in the tech world. In my debut cookbook, Weeknight Baking, I finally reveal the secrets to baking delicious desserts on a tight schedule.
