SMS – Fluffy Coconut Cake with Passion Fruit Filling

10-20-08 106 copy

I’ve been wicked short on time as of late. I’m surprised that I even got at least SOME of this recipe under my belt before my proverbial plate filled up.

And as you guessed it, I’m short on time now… so I won’t keep you too long!

I was under the impression that this cake was a coconut cake. I was finished mixing the batter when I realized that there was not coconut, well, ANYTHING! Thinking I’d missed a step, I re-read the recipe and saw that it was the frosting that was coco-nutty.

Ehhhh no thanks.

So to save on time (and sanity) I quartered the recipe, made them cake into cupcakes, cut a hole on top to fill with apricot jam and topped with cream cheese frosting.

The cake was indeed fluffy and tasty (extra vanilla-ish because I used vanilla soy milk in place of the regular milk) but I’m not much of a frosting person so I ate them plain.

For the recipe for the cake, filling and frosting… head on over to Karen’s blog, Karen of Karen’s Cookies Cakes & More.

Up next week: Peanut Brittle.

  1. Those cupcakes look so pretty. How wonderful it would be to bite into them with that apricot jam running through the middles. Delicious combination.

  2. I see you found the liners! They look terrific 🙂 Where did you end up getting them? We already discussed the cake yesterday so I won’t ramble on about how much I liked it, instead I’ll just tell you yours sound great with the combination of flavors you used. I will be making this recipe again soon!

    • I actually ended up getting them from Williams-Sonoma. They came in a pack of 5 colors, 80-ish liners I think(?) for around $6.50 not to shabby. Plus I could try out ALL of the colors without having to dedicate money to buying 5 separate sets. Win-win!

  3. i know, isn’t that weird that melissa calls this coconut cake?!?!

    love those cupcake liners…you’re the 2nd baker i’ve seen use those this week 🙂 sooo cute

  4. We used the same cupcake liners! Genius idea to sub the filling with apricot jam. I especially like the little swirl of jam on the frosting – so pretty!

  5. Good to *meet* you!! thanks for stopping by so that I could come back here and see some serious sweetnuss. I’m all about the coconut! Brother just got married and the baker made some awesome chocolate and coconut cake and cupcakes!
