Creamy Coconut Rum Cake

I’ve been on the lookout for a yummy coconut cake for awhile now. I found several that sounded good but not exactly what I was looking for.

So I tweaked a recipe and tried it out. I served it last week at a picnic and had people begging for the recipe! It was honestly that good.

Matt has declared it is the best cake that he’s ever had. And he doesn’t even really like coconut so that’s high praise indeed!
