Recipe: Four Layer Coconut Cake

Recipe: Four Layer Coconut Cake for birthdays, Easter or other special occasionsWhen I think of April, I think of coconut cake. I have made this cake once a year for the last 20 years. In fact, I bought my Tupperware cake container specifically for this cake. It's my mother-in-law's recipe and my husbands favorite cake. It's a great for celebrations like birthdays but would also be a delicious finale for an Easter dinner or other special occasions.

Now, those of you who know me, also know that I am not the cook in the house. So, I'll admit that in the early years of our marriage, I took a shortcut and made this as a two layer cake instead of four. The cake still tastes the same, but even I can appreciate that adding those extra two layers just fills the cake with love and it's worth the effort.


  • white cake mix
  • 7 oz flake coconut
  • 1 1/2 c sugar
  • 16 oz sour cream
  • 4 oz Cool Whip


Bake two, round 8 or 9-inch cakes according to the package directions. Remove the cakes from the pan and let them cool completely.

Place the cakes in the freezer for about 10 minutes. Remove the cakes from the freezer and use a bread knife to carefully cut each cake in half horizontally.
For the filling, combine the coconut, sugar and sour cream. Set aside one cup of the filling.
Place the first layer of the cake on a dish and spread 1/3 of the filling over the cake. Add the second layer and top with filling, then the third layer and the last of the filling. Place the fourth layer on the top.
For the frosting, mix 4 oz Cool Whip with the reserved 1 cup of filling.

Frost the top and sides of the cake.

Cover and refrigerate the cake for at least 6 hours before serving.

Invite your friends over, blow up some balloons and it's a party!
