Jenny Jones Easy One Bowl Coconut Cake Recipe

It’s best to have all your ingredients at room temperature and I highly recommend using a cake strip so the edges don't over-bake. Be sure to aerate your flour before measuring.- Jenny Jones

Prep Time: 10 minutesJenny Jones Photo

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Makes:       8 servings


1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/3 cup oil (any vegetable oil or extra light olive oil)

1/2 cup milk (I use 1% low fat milk)

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

1/3 cup shredded sweetened coconut

Cream Cheese Frosting:

2 ounces reduced fat cream cheese

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1-3 teaspoons milk

(1/2 cup shredded coconut for topping)


Preheat oven to 350° F.

Grease an 8 or 9-inch round cake pan.

With an electric mixer on high, beat sugar, eggs, & vanilla for one minute to thicken.

On low speed add remaining ingredients (in the order listed) but do not over-mix. This should take less than a minute.

Pour into pan and bake for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely.

Cream Cheese Frosting:

Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar & vanilla and add just enough milk, a little bit at a time, to get a good spreading consistency. Frost the cooled cake and top with more shredded coconut. Keep refrigerated.
