Coconut Cake With Glaze Recipe


Do you love coconut? I do! Surround it with nuts and a gooey, warm sweet glaze on top of cake right-out-of-the oven and, YUM! I won't be able to stop eating it. Will you?  :)

Grandmother's Kitchen created this luscious dessert they say to prepare and serve it right away, while it is still warm. 

Here's the recipe for this amazing cake:


Makes one 9-inch cake
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large size eggs
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup milk

2 Tablespoons unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 – 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 cup shredded natural coconut
*Optional, 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat the oven 325 degrees F.
  • Lightly butter and flour a 9" square baking pan and set aside.
  • In a medium sized bowl mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • In a mixing bowl beat the eggs and sugar until thick, about 5 minutes the beat in the vanilla.
  • Meanwhile in a saucepan on the stove top, heat milk and butter until simmering. Stir and watch to not scorch.
  • Slowly add the egg mixture in a slow and steady stream as you continue beating until well combined.
  • Fold the dry ingredients into the hot milk mixture until just combined. Don't over beat.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes or until golden brown and the cake is starting to pull away from the sides of the pan.
  • Remove from the oven and sit the pan on a cooling rack.
  • Cool cake in pan for 5 minutes. Poke a few holes in the cake with a fork and drizzle with glaze while cake is still warm.

  • Prepare the glaze to to be ready to drizzle over the cake while it is still warm.
  • Whisk together the coconut milk, and confectioner’s sugar,until smooth.
  • If it is too thick, stir in a little more coconut milk. If the glaze is to thin, stir in more confectioners's sugar. Stir in the coconut and chopped walnuts.
  • Serve this cake warm.
