  • Summary

    This is a coconut lover's dream: a super easy gooey butter cake with a ton of fluffy coconut cream in the middle! If you don’t have a skillet, I believe you can bake this in a greased 9-inch square baking dish (I’d use a glass one if you have it, and check it early and often. Remove when there’s some jiggle left.) Let us know how it goes if you try it this way for all the other skilletless people!
