      Does anyone have a recipe for a coconut flavored cake? I am craving a one. Coconut frosting would also be nice.

      Thanks,

      Cathy

      Rave Reviews Coconut Cake

      INGREDIENTS (Nutrition)
      1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
      1 (3.5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
      1 1/3 cups water
      4 eggs
      1/4 cup vegetable oil
      2 cups flaked coconut
      1 cup chopped walnuts
      4 tablespoons butter
      2 cups flaked coconut
      2 teaspoons milk
      3 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
      1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
      1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese

      DIRECTIONS
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 8 or 9 inch round cake pans.
      Blend the cake mix, pudding mix, water, eggs and oil in a large mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed for 4 minutes.

      Stir in 2 cups of the coconut and the chopped walnuts. Pour the batter into the prepared pans.
      Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 minutes. Let cakes cool in pans for 15 minutes then remove and finish cooling on rack.
      To Make Frosting: Melt the butter or margarine in a skillet.

      Add the 2 cups flaked coconut and stir constantly over low heat until golden brown. Spread coconut on absorbent paper to cool.
      Cream the remaining 2 tablespoons butter or margarine with the cream cheese. Add the milk and confectioners’ sugar alternately, beating well.

      Add the vanilla and stir in 1 3/4 cups of the toasted coconut.
      To Assemble Cake: Spread tops of cooled cake layers with some of the frosting. Stack them and then frost the sides of the cake. Sprinkle Cake with the remaining toasted coconut.
