Pudding Coconut Cake


I don’t know about you, but I have eaten light all week.  Why, you ask …am I on a diet?  No …not exactly …I am saving up to have all those wonderfully delicious dishes that we will eat over at Angie’s, The Novice Gardener.  We will be feasting …for it is Fiesta Friday!!


It is Easter time and one of the desserts my Mom always baked at Easter was a Coconut Cake.  Although this is not my Mom’s recipe, I think it is quite good.  Very moist, creamy and fluffy.


The pudding in the mix makes it extra moist and gives it a little more of a coconut flavor.  It is quick and easy and delicious!  This is one I will definitely make again.  Please do have a slice.  Wishing all of you a Blessed and Happy Easter time!

  1. Arl, you should have told me earlier this week…I wouldn’t have eaten at all if I knew you were bringing this cake. Still, though, I’ll probably take a slice (or three). Thanks for joining us at the party, and for the delicious Easter treat! I love the little egg decorations, too.


  2. The pudding in the cake must make a delicious texture and far from dry! I love how the cake is all dressed up for Easter 🙂 Thanks for bringing it to the Fiesta, you know we LOVE our sweets on Fridays 🙂 Have a great weekend!


    1. Thanks so much Nancy and you are welcome! I do believe it is time for me to cut back on the sweet recipes. I am not going to be able to fit into last years shorts and the weather is warming up. Ha! Wishing you a great weekend as well!


  3. Arlene, my goal was to eat light this week, too. I must have forgotten somewhere along the way. Heheh! What a great cake you have brought to our fiesta. I love everything coconut! Yay!


  4. LOL! Yes, it is always a good idea to eat lightly before Fiesta Friday, especially when the guests will be bringing coconut pudding cake!! Oh, wow – I’ll take a very large piece please!!


  5. That cake looks awesome, with all that delicious coconut. I won’t be able to eat anything with leavening agents till Tuesday night, but it’s definitely something I’d like to make after Pesach ends. I could probably even make a Pesach version with something like coconut or almond flour.
