This cake is super fast, beautiful, and full of flavor! With a coconut spin on the classic, this cake amps up the taste buds. The warm cinnamon pairs well with whipped cream or hot coffee. This recipe produces two round 8×8 cakes; which makes it perfect to share or cook side by side with someone special. A Gluten Free option is also listed.
