Triple Coconut Cake

I make this cake in a slow cooker and when I invert it, the top ends up being a darker brown and a little crunchy while the inside of the cake is light and very moist.

Cake Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup unrefined coconut oil room temperature
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 3 large large eggs room temperature
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk

Frosting Ingredients

  • 8 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups toasted coconut flakes


Cake Instructions

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat sugar, coconut oil, and butter until fully combined.
  • Mix in eggs, one at a time.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder.
  • Alternately add flour mixture and coconut milk into the butter/sugar mixture until just combined.
  • Spread batter evenly in a greased 6 quart slow cooker. Place paper towels over the top of the slow cooker bowl to absorb the condensation that occurs during baking. Then, close the lid over the towels.
  • Cook on high for about 90 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cooking time may vary by slow cooker model.
  • Cool for 15 minutes in the slow cooker. Then, carefully invert onto a serving plate.

Frosting Instructions

  • Beat cream cheese and butter in a stand mixer on high speed for about 3 minutes or until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in powdered sugar a little at a time until fully combined.
  • Beat in salt and vanilla extract.
  • Spread on cooled cake.
  • Top with coconut flakes.


To toast coconut flakes, put them on a baking sheet in a single layer at 350 F for five minutes.
