Easy Red Coconut Cream Cake on a Ritz Cracker Crust



Yup, it’s lazy weekend time once again – means, creating something amazing with almost no work :)

This Red Coconut Cream Cake is heavenly easy and absolutely amazing!
The cream cheese gives this cake such a great texture (I prefer this one over the normal cake box mix cake texture) – still fluffy, but kind of creamy and … (I don’t have words for how much I love it)!
Putting the whole thing on a Ritz Cracker crust was simply genius – Coconut and Ritz go together so well, I would have never thought that!
And the red coconut on top, just gives it a lovely color contrast :)

Easy Red Coconut Cream Cake on a Ritz Cracker Crust
Recipe type: Dessert
What you need
The Crust:
  • 1 roll Ritz Crackers
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
The Cake:
  • 1 Box White Cake Mix
  • 12 ounces cream cheese, fat free, softened
  • ⅓ cup canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup coconut flakes
  • Red food coloring (about 10 drops)
How you make it
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F
  2. Line a 8 inch baking pan (I use a brownie pan) with parchment paper
  3. In a large bowl combine crushed crackers with melted butter and stir until all soaked
  4. Press crust in pan, try to get up the sides with it a little and bake for 12 minutes
  5. Meanwhile in a large bowl combine cake mix, cream cheese, oil and egg until smooth (batter will be very thick)
  6. Spread batter gently over pre-baked crust
  7. In a small bowl combine coconut flakes and red food coloring until color fits your liking
  8. Sprinkle coconut over cream cheese mixture and bake for additional 35 minutes
  9. Let cool completely before serving
*cake tastes amazing the first day, but gets even better if you wait one or two days - storage in the fridge!
