CocoCrazy Cake with Marshmallow Cream Cheese Frosting

Lately I have been on a bit of a coconut kick…I think because it seems tropical and I am in full “tropical” mode. 
I mean, summer is finally here and I am going to enjoy it…here in NJ it only lasts a little while, so live it up folks!
You can catch me at any moment during the day sipping my Diet Coke out of a hurricane glass with a little umbrella, doing the laundry in my grass skirt or “lei”ing anything that walks through my door. hehe.
Ok-none of that’s true.  I live in a small town and people talk. Bus-stop gossip is real.

I can already hear it now:
“Did you see her get her mail in that coconut bra?”
“I saw her trying to hula dance by her kiddie pool”
“I’m pretty sure there is a totem pole being whittled by the side of her house”
“Oh, her poor kids”

So, while I keep my luau contained to the kitchen…here’s a fun and easy cake.
Get your coconut bras on people…you’re gonna need them!

Coco-Crazy Cake with Marshmallow Cream Cheese Frosting:

2 1/2 cups AP flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
2 cups shredded sweetened coconut flakes
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cups milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup melted butter

1 cup Marshmallow Creme
1 lb sifted powdered sugar
1 8 oz. block of softened cream cheese.
1/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut flakes for garnish

Preheat to 350

Grease an 8×8 square pan
Whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar and coconut.  Set aside.
In medium bowl whisk eggs together, add milk and vanilla and whisk to combine.
Making a well in center of flour mixture, add melted butter first and then remaining wet ingredients.  Using a wooden spoon fold until just combined.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake approx 35-40 minutes until middle is set and toothpick comes out clean.
Cool in pan for 10-15 minutes and then transfer to cooling rack.

As cake cools prepare frosting.

In mixing bowl, using hand-held mixer combine softened cream cheese and marshmallow creme, about 1 minute.
When thoroughly combined add in sifted powdered sugar and mix until smooth on med-high speed.

When cake is completely cool, frost.
I frosted only the top of the cake, but feel free to frost the entire thing…it’s up to you! Garnish with reserved coconut.

Yum! Doesn’t that say “Summer”?  Thanks so much Shelly, for sharing your paradise with us!

    Yum, this is now at the top of my weekend baking list! I gotta tell you it was that insane frosting that did it for me. Perhaps I don’t need cake for it. Just a spoon? Hee-hee! That’s why I can’t fit into my bikini anymore.
