Coconut Cream Sheet Cake

There is nothing that says summer than coconut and strawberries!!! So why not try out my EXTREMELY simple and very very moist & fluffy coconut sheet cake! It’s amazing for parties and gatherings. You get a good amount of servings from it, plus both kids and adults love it!

Here’s how you bake it!


For the Coconut Cake –

  • 113g (1/2 cup) salted butter softened
  • 118ml (1/2 cupvegetable oil
  • 300g (1½ cupssugar
  • 2 tsp coconut extract
  • 6 large egg whites room temperature
  • 350ml (1 1/2 cups) coconut milk
  • 120ml (1/2 cupsour cream
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) milk
  • 448g (3½ cupsflour
  • 48g (1/2 cup) shredded coconut
  • 4 tsp of baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt

For the Garnish –

  • 140ml (1 cup) Heavy Cream
  • 48g (1/2 cup) toasted coconut shreds (the long coconut shavings)
  • 140g (1 cup) sliced strawberries


  1. Grease and line your baking tray with baking paper (parchment paper). I used my regular oven tray – it’s perfect in size and gets me roughly 35 squares. Preheat your oven to 175C.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, use a hand mixer (or a stand mixer) to cream the butter, oil, and sugar together until smooth. Beat in coconut extract and egg whites for 2 minutes until fluffy. Beat in coconut milk, sour cream until just combined.
  3. Mix in flour, baking powder, and salt until just combined. Then add the milk and coconut shreds. Mix until just combined.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared tray and bake for 25-35 min (this varies depending on size of tray and oven, but as long as a cake tester comes out clean and you have a light golden brown color, you know it’s ready!).
  5. Let sit in the tray for 5 – 10 minutes until completely cooled.
  6. You can then either keep it in the tray (as I did because I was taking it to a party) or you can transfer it to a wire wrack or a serving board.
  7. Slice the cake evenly to get squares. I did mine 5×6 so ended up with 35 beautiful plump squares. Make sure to use a sedated knife as the cake is extremely moist and fluffy!!
  8. You can eat it like this or as I have done, garnish with some piped whipped cream, toasted coconut shavings and some sliced strawberries!!!

And Voila!!!! Your amazingly simple coconut sheet cake is ready!!
