Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Beat together sugar, coconut oil, and butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer until fully combined. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.

  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Working in batches, stir flour mixture into butter mixture alternately with coconut milk until just combined.

  • Generously coat a 6-quart oval slow cooker with cooking spray and line bottom with parchment paper. Spread batter evenly in slow cooker. Drape paper towels over top of slow cooker (to absorb any condensation during baking), then cover with lid. Cook on High until a wooden skewer inserted into center of cake comes out clean, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

  • Remove lid and paper towels. Using oven mitts, remove ceramic liner from slow cooker and let cool 10 minutes. Carefully turn cake out onto a serving platter and let cool completely, about 1 hour.

  • For the frosting, beat together cream cheese and butter in a bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in powdered sugar, a little at a time, until fully combined. Beat in salt and vanilla.

  • Frost top of cake and top with coconut flakes to serve.

This cake has a very nice favor and the icing is a good compliment to the cake. Next time however I will make it in the oven instead of the crock pot. One side was a little burned and it was pretty crispy on the edges even where it wasn't burned. My crock pot clearly doesn't heat evenly though (which I'd always suspected) and I do not fault the recipe for that. When I checked on it after cooking for 1 hr 15 mins the burned side was already too dark but the center was not cooked- it needed a full hour and a half before it was cooked through. (We cut the burned part off and it was fine.) Read More

Even though I followed the directions very closely my cake was still not done after 2 hours. I kept checking on it every 15 minutes after 1 hour. After an hour and 45 minutes I turned it down to low and left it cooking with the lid and paper towel because I was concerned it was starting to burn. Total cooking time was 2 hours and 15 minutes (and 30 minutes of that time was on low). I suggest you do not disturb it at all for 1.5 hours and then check on it. Also I substituted coconut extract for the vanilla in the frosting. Other than the hassle over the cooking time the cake was excellent. Read More

This was good. I cooked it 2-1/2 hrs. I added coconut extract to cake and shredded coconut. Read More
