lemon coconut cake


i've been on the lookout for the perfect lemon coconut cake for quite sometime. although i over-cooked this one just slightly, it was still oh-so-delicious and after i had shared with my family and in-laws, i had to throw the rest of it out so i wouldn't eat it all. strong will power has never really been my thing, you know. anyway, here's the deets:

adapted from betty crocker:

1 box of lemon cake mix
1 small box of lemon jello
4 eggs
2/3 c water
1/3 c canola oil
1 container fluffy white frosting
shredded coconut

preheat the oven to 350 degrees. mix first 5 ingredients together and pour into prepared pans. i used a 9 x 13 because i knew i didn't have time to mess with 2 rounds and then the stacking, ect. and let's be honest - i really suck at making cakes look beautiful unless they are left in their original baking pan. bake the cake/s for 30 minutes, give or take. when done let cool completely. slather with frosting and then liberally top with coconut. extra coconut for me, please!

voila!

only i think next time i make this i will toast the coconut. nothing better than toasted coconut!
