This perfectly moist carrot cake is chock full of carrots, pineapple and coconut. Topped with hefty layer of my favorite coconut cream cheese frosting!
Remember this carrot layer cake I shared with you guys in 2015? I titled it my favorite.. While that classic carrot cake will always be a favorite, this version I am sharing with you guys today is right there alongside it! As I type this, I am eating a big ol’ slice for breakfast. Vegetables and fruit for the win! I’m having a salad for lunch.. It’s all about balance, my friends.
Anyways, this pineapple carrot coconut cake with cream cheese frosting (<– THAT’s a mouthful), is chock full of lots of delicious stuff. Crushed pineapple, sweetened coconut and carrots are the power trio starring in this recipe. The addition of pineapple and coconut are exactly what every carrot cake is missing! While you can taste them in the cake, they add a very subtle oomph to an otherwise basic carrot cake.
Coconut cream cheese frosting is my favorite frosting ever. I based it off of my recipe I used in this coconut lemon layer cake. And seriously you guys, you are going to want to put this goodness on everything! If you love cream cheese frosting, you will love this coconut version.
