Keto Coconut Cake

After what seems like the longest Winter in years, and years, and years, Spring has finally arrived in a slow and tedious way. To speed up the process in our kitchen, we decided to make a coconut cake that will make anyone think we're basking in the warming sunshine that Spring brings.

This coconut cake is 100% keto-friendly and low-carb. One addition I'd highly recommend - adding in shredded coconut to the batter before baking - it would give this coconut cake a delicious toasted-coconut flavor!!
