Coconut lovers, REJOICE! It's finally here!
The most beautiful and INTENSELY coconutty DREAM CAKE is yours for the making. This spectacular 6 layered creation is loaded with coconut flavor. And that's because it's made with 5 different coconut products! Coconut flakes, coconut butter, coconut oil, coconut milk, and coconut extract! Yaaas.
Die hard coconut fans --if you love all things coconut and can't get enough of that delicious tropical flavor, you will LOVE this dessert. And unlike traditional coconut pies and cakes, this is gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free! It's also grain-free and can easily be made Paleo by swapping the maple syrup for honey.
PLUS it's no-bake and actually pretty simple to make. Just blend up the ingredients in a food processor. Pile up the layers and you have this stunning, towering masterpiece of glorious coconut BLISS. The hardest part is the waiting for the layers to set.
I just want to stare at this cake. lol It's pretty, right? This is definitely one of my favorites. (I LOVE COCONUT.. in case you didn't know.) Worth every minute making it and every calorie eating it. Haha. It's full of healthy fats, for sure! And haven't you heard-- fat is GOOD for you. Yes and AMEN. Give me allll the fat.
Anyone obsessed with coconut like I am? You NEED this cake.
Where do you get coconut butter?
If you have a food processor, it's really easy and less expensive to make yourself. But you can find it at a health food store, such as Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, etc. Also available on Amazon. It's also called coconut manna. http://amzn.to/2sHufiS
Hi Emily! Just a quick question... I really want to make this pie to take to a housewarming party I'm attending. However, I think it's going to mostly be finger food at the party---so do you think there's a chance I can make this in a 9x13 or 8x8 pan so I can cut in up into smaller squares? I'd like to neatly fit the squares into paper muffin holders....but do you think it would work out?
Yes, I think 8x8 would work! Or 9x13 if you double the recipe (or do 3 layers instead of 6)
But the smaller the pan, the taller the cake will be (and vice versa)
If you're not using a springform, just be sure to press the date mixture in the pan firmly so it holds together.
Hope that helps! Let me know how it turns out
Sounds great! Thank you soooo much! I will let you know how it turns out!! You're the best!
Question Where do you get Vanilla Bean powder?
I get it on Amazon. My bag has lasted years http://amzn.to/2FljzMk
