My grandmother was famous for her coconut cake.  Here is my mom's take of grandma's cake.  I haven't had the opportunity to sample this coconut cake. But, mom says it's great. Can't argue with mom. But, I can whine because she hasn't made me one!


  • 1 Box of your favorite yellow cake mix
  • 1 - 16 oz container fat free sour cream
  • 1 ½ - 2 cups sugar
  • 1-2 Pkgs frozen coconut - thawed


  • Bake cake in 2-3 round pans at 325 degrees
  • While cake is baking, mix sour cream and sugar together and let set.
  • When cake is done, turn out first layer on plate,
  • Punch holes all over the top and sides
  • Spoon sour cream/sugar mixture onto hot cake
  • Top with coconut
  • Repeat for each additional layer.
