We're having an Hawaiian themed potluck on Friday, and

I want to make coconut cake with Cream Cheese and Pineapple Frosting.

My question is, have any of you ever substituted other liquid ingredients in your cake mix besides the cup of water it calls for?
I bought a can of Coconut Milk, hoping this will work.

  • Another thought is some pineapple juice. It works in pineapple upsidedown cake. Although the coconut milk will be rich and delicious and might result in a cake that is firmer and easy to frost.

  • Coconut water would work as well. It's consistency is more like water than coconut milk.

  • If you look at the coconut milk you will see that it is denser than water but similar. The cake will be slightly denser but it will be just fine.
