Coconut Sour Cream Cake

I found this recipe on the Southern Food website, and we all loved it. I didn't think Mr. Mountain Breaths would even touch it since he never eats anything "creamy", but he said is was great. 

The only changes I made to the ingredients was to use organic sour cream and coconut, and I used real whipped cream for the frosting.  


  • 1 cake mix, butter flavor, about 18 1/2 ounces
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 package (12 ounces) frozen coconut, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups whipped topping


Prepare cake mix according to directions, baking two 8-inch layers. Cool completely and split each layer horizontally.(I used dental floss to split the layers.)
Combine sugar, sour cream, and coconut; blend well and chill. Reserve 1 cup sour cream for coconut cake frosting and spread remaining sour cream mixture between layers. Combine reserved 1 cup sour cream mixture with the 1 1/2 cups whipped topping; blend until smooth. Spread over top and on sides of coconut cake. Keep sour cream coconut cake in an airtight container and store in refrigerator.

I hope you had a wonderful Easter! I am joining our wonderful hostess at Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday.

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..

    Happy Easter to you and Joe!

  2. Aww your Mom is going to love the pretty cake. Happy Easter blessings to you and your family, Debbie. XO
    p.s. I made a coconut cake, too!!

  3. You cake looks beautiful Debbie! Happy Easter-enjoy:@)

  4. Oh, how I miss coconut cake! No one else in my family cares for it, so I'm either left with an entire cake to devour on my own (which on the surface sounds pretty good, but we all know that can't be right!), or to just go without. :-( I'm going to find a coconut cake eatin' buddy around here somewhere! :-)

    Happy Easter!!!!!!

  5. Debbie, hope your are having a beautiful day. We met friends for brunch out. I ended my meal with a slice of coconut cake. '-)
    Happy Easter......Sarah

  6. Now, that cake sure looks mighty fine...your mama is gonna love it, I just know.
    hugs, bj

  7. There's so much I love about this cake, I don't know where to begin. I like the addition of organic products, and I love how you made your own whipped cream. It looks rich yet airy, the perfect ending for a holiday meal. Thanks for adding the recipe to Foodie Friday!


I'm so happy you decided to stop by my blog. Please leave a comment as I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you!
