Blender Coconut Cake



Growing up my great-grandmother would make this super moist and yummy coconut bake. It was a basic yellow cake layered with vanilla frosting and with coconut shavings all over it. It was amazing! It was a recipe she was known for making along with her peach cobbler and I always looked forward to every time she would make it. As I've gotten older I would make the recipe at home. However, nothing comes close to grandmas.
With Thanksgiving right around the corner. I'm already thinking about the meals that I will create and what my menu will be. This year my sister is hosting Thanksgiving at her home. However, the Mister and I are doing a lot of the cooking.
I love recipes that I can have on hand and make on a whim. There's something about looking like a hero in the kitchen when you spent very little time making the dish. I love my family, however, I don't want to spend all day in the kitchen on Thanksgiving. Every year I incorporate a new dessert to our dessert menu. For the last couple of years I've made Millionaire pie, and of course, we can't forget about old fateful. Sweet potato pie, Red Velvet cake, and Upside Down Pineapple Cake.
My family loved this cake. The Mister had two slices and he's not even a dessert type of guy. I love that didn't have to clean twenty dishes behind making this recipe.
