Do you think I post too many recipes for cakes? Ok maybe I do but I love love love a good baked good! This is one of my absolute favorite cakes. Even a devout chocoholic I can safely say that this is one of my all time favorite cakes. and its so pretty!!
This cake doesn’t call for caramel but I like to add it because it makes the cake so moist and added another layer of flavors.
frost the in sides and outside of the cake not the top!! That will be for the chocolate ganache. You can add cake crumbs to the sides instead of coconut, my kids will eat this cake if I present it as a cream cake and not a coconut cream cake. I think the extra coconut is what they don’t like. However I di like to have a small baggie filled with extra coconut for me when I make it this way. LOL
cake crumb topping, is just a mix of 1/2c sugar, 1/2c brown sugar, 3/4c flour,1t vanilla extract, and stick of butter. mix until crumbly. then pop in the oven for 15 min at 300.
