How To Make holiday pistachio and coconut pudding cake

  • 1
    Shred the coconut flakes finer by putting them in a Cuisinart for a couple of minutes. Melt the coconut oil. The coconut oil comes in a jar and can be found near the other oils in the grocery store. Just scoop out the amount you need into a microwave safe bowl, and then microwave it for a minute or so to melt it.
  • 2
    Mix the cake mix, soda, eggs, pudding mix, melted coconut oil and finely shredded coconut in a mixer on low speed until combined. Mix an additional 3 minutes on medium speed.
  • 3
    Oil the bottom and sides of two standard round cake pans. Divide the thick cake batter evenly between the two, smoothing out the batter on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • 4
    After the cakes have been out of the oven for 15 minutes, remove them from the pans and let them cool on cooling racks.
  • 5
    While the cakes are cooking, make the frosting. Mix the cream cheese in a mixer for 2-4 minutes until it is fluffy and light. Add the powdered sugar and pudding mix and continue to mix for another minute until combined. Add the milk and mix until creamy about one minute.
  • 6
    Fold the Cool Whip into the cream cheese mixture using a large spoon.
  • 7
    Put one cake layer down and add 1/3 of the frosting on top of it. Smooth evenly. Add the second layer of cake and frost the cake with the remaining 2/3 of the frosting. Sprinkle the top with the chopped pistachios.
