I saw a recipe on ABC’s “The Chew” recently for a southern style coconut cake by chef Carla Hall. It was a sloppy layer cake that looked insanely delightful and I wanted to re-create it in a healthy manner.
I decided on cupcakes because I’m low on sweetener at the moment and I didn’t want to make a whole cake. This recipe only makes six cupcakes, so if you want to do a full layer cake, I’d quadruple the recipe.
This is a really interesting recipe that is absolutely delicious. I never thought of using sour cream as a frosting in a coconut cake recipe, but it really gives the cake a wonderful “twang” that really makes it tasty!
