The most amazing coconut cake with layers of fluffy coconut cake, pineapple filling, and topped with coconut cream cheese. The bundt bun is somewhat of a masterpiece, and it could be one of my all-time favorite buns!
I reached the status of a food nerd by how happy I am with this coconut cake. It is incredible! Dare I say it – it’s on par with my mom’s ridiculously amazing German chocolate cake. this is good.
The cake is incredibly moist (I hate that word, but should be used here), and not too sweet, which I really like because it blends so well with the flavors from the pineapple filling and frosting, without any ingredient being too sweet. Also, you can make the cake, filling and freezing in advance.
The recipe was inspired by this coconut cake from A Bountiful Kitchen. I added cream cheese buttercream with a little coconut milk for extra creaminess and hints of coconut flavor.
