Kitchen Equipment You’ll Need

Before embarking on this culinary journey, gather these essential tools to ensure a smooth baking experience:

  • Cake pan (greased)
  • Mixing bowls
  • Whisk
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Saucepan
  • Wooden spoon or spatula
  • Toothpick
  • Cooling rack

Ingredients and Directions


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 ½ cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • Additional shredded coconut for garnish


  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C) and greasing your cake pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix these dry ingredients until well incorporated.
  3. Add the eggs, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the dry mixture. Blend everything together until a smooth batter forms.
  4. Gradually incorporate the boiling water into the batter, mixing continuously until the batter is velvety and uniform.
  5. Gently fold in the sweetened shredded coconut, ensuring it’s evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and use a spatula to smooth the top.
  7. Bake the cake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. While the cake cools, heat the heavy cream in a saucepan until it’s hot but not boiling. Remove from heat and stir in the semisweet chocolate chips until the mixture is smooth and luxurious.
  9. Once the cake has cooled completely, pour the luscious chocolate ganache over the top, allowing it to elegantly drip down the sides.
  10. Sprinkle additional shredded coconut on the ganache for a delightful garnish.
  11. It’s time to slice, serve, and bask in the delight of your homemade Chocolate Coconut Bounty Cake!
