Gluten Free Carrot Coconut Cake
When it comes to cake, one of my favorites is hands down Carrot Cake. One bowl, simple ingredients and with the addition of the carrot, it makes me feel like I’m eating a little bit healthy. The only thing that I think can make Carrot Cake better is with add-ins like nuts, but out of all the add-ins, coconut flakes is my favorite and that is how this Gluten Free Coconut Carrot Cake was born.
Every so often, I make cakes for special occasions. This cake makes the perfect dessert for Easter or even a wedding. (Hence the fresh flowers used to decorate the cake.)
With the flavors of traditional carrot cake like cinnamon, this cake has a delightful crunch from the coconut. And my favorite part is that it can be made in one bowl with no mixer required. So if you’re looking for an easy an impressive dessert, this is it! Or try our Gluten Free Hummingbird Cake Another easy cake with great flavor.

Carrot cake is my weakness if it were sitting around, I would probably eat much of it. Do you think I could pour the batter in 2 6″ cake pans and toss the leftovers or bake them as a few muffins? Would a 6″ cake pan cake bake faster than the 8 or 9″? Just sort of thinking out loud. Thank you!

😊😊😊 I sometimes bake it in 3, 6” cake pans. If you make it in 2, you could get about 6 cupcakes or maybe 7. You could also do 2 nine inch just bake until it’s ready. 😊 hope this helps!
