Pumpkin Spice Cake with Coconut Topping #CakeSliceBakers

I will confess, topping a pumpkin spice cake with coconut is not something I would have ever thought to do if I hadn't had it as a choice for this month's CakeSliceBakers event.  But I had all the ingredients on hand so thought, why not?  Really, the question should have been, why have I not done this before!  This cake was delicious.  It was so good that I used the other half of my can of pumpkin puree to make it again.

This recipe includes chopped pecans in the cake; I added a few extra to the topping which we all enjoyed.  The cake itself was moist and had a great taste to it.  The topping wasn't too sweet and complemented the cake beautifully.  Best of all, it made a great breakfast the next morning!

Definitely a keeper!

Each month The Cake Slice Bakers are offered a selection of cakes from the current book we are baking through. This year it is Little Everyday Cakes by Candace Floyd. We each choose one cake to bake, and then on the 20th - never before - we all post about our cake on our blogs. There are a few rules that we follow, but the most important ones are to have fun and enjoy baking & eating cakes!

Follow our Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest pages where you can find all of our cakes, as well as inspiration for many other cakes. You can also click on the thumbnail pictures below to take you to each of our cakes. If you have a blog and are interested in joining The Cake Slice Bakers and baking along with us, please send an email to thecakeslicebakers at gmail dot com for more details.

The Cake Slice Bakers also have a new Facebook group called The Cake Slice Bakers and Friends. This group is perfect for those who do not have a blog but want to join in the fun and bake through this book.

It is a new year and a new book - Little Everyday Cakes - and our choices for October 2021 were ~

  1. I loved this cake too and it did make a great breakfast with our coffee the next day.

  2. I hadn't thought about pumpkin and coconut together either. It looks delicious.

  3. It was so stinking good! I wouldn't have put the two together either, but YUM! Lovely cake, Kim!

  4. Making it a second time is a true testament to it's goodness!
