This coconut spice cake with nutmeg rum frosting makes a delicious dessert and is EASY!

Sometimes you just NEED an easy dessert that doesn’t require a ton of ingredients or time. This coconut spice cake with nutmeg rum frosting is just that.  We love adding extra spices and rum to cakes and frostings, it adds great flavor! This dessert is even better the next day so you can make it a day or so in advance.

Coconut Spice Cake

1 (15.25 oz) Spice Cake Mix

1 cup evaporated milk

1/3 cup water

1/3 cup oil

3 eggs

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/4 teaspoon allspice

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 cup walnut pieces

1 cup Nestles Tollhouse Premier White Morsels

1 cup coconut

In a mixing bowl mix together cake mix, milk, water, spices and eggs.  Fold in coconut, walnuts, and morsels.  Pour into a sprayed cake pan and cook in preheated 350 degree oven for 45 to 55 minutes until the center is done. Let cool 15 to 20 minutes before removing from pan.

Nutmeg Rum Frosting:

1 (16 ounce) can of Vanilla Frosting

4 teaspoons rum

2 teaspoons nutmeg

Whisk together ingredients and microwave until pourable from a pitcher. Pour over cooled cake. I used only half the can to do a drizzle-type frosting on this cake.  Use the entire can to frost the entire cake.  (Note: If using a regular cake pan and not a bundt pan, just spread the frosting over the cake).

Note: you could use vanilla or rum extract instead of rum. You could also add coconut to the icing or sprinkle it on top of the cake once it is iced.
