Justin Timberlake's Granny's Coconut Cake

Dear Friends,

Do I see any coconut lovers? You will be raving about Justin Timberlake's Granny's Coconut Cake, featured in People Magazine's Cooking with the Stars in 2011.

Granny's Coconut Cake


1 (18.25-oz.) white cake mix
8 oz. sour cream
1 1/2 cup sugar
3 (7-oz.) packages sweetened, flake coconut


1. Prepare cake mix according to package directions, using two 8 or 9-inch round pans.  Once cakes are cool, slice in half to form four layers.
2. In a bowl, mix together sour cream, sugar and two of the packages of coconut. Place one cake layer on a serving plate. Ice the top with the coconut mixture. Repeat with the next two layers. Place the last layer on top and cover entire cake with remaining icing.
3. Sprinkle some of the coconut from the third package on the top of the cake. Apply the rest to the sides, patting it on with the palm of your hand. Keep cake in a cool place or refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before serving.
