  1. This sounds delicious and I’d love to make it with my fresh papaya. However, I don’t have shredded coconut. Can I make it without?

    1. Totally!! Go for it. I rarely make things the same way twice! 🙂

  2. Thank you so much for posting this delicious recipe. It was just what I was looking for with ample amounts of papaya to use up! I found that mine took quite long to bake-11/2 hrs-and I did end up using the icing from “An Edible Mosiac”. Could have gone either way with the icing because the cake itself it quite delicious! Mahalo.

  3. I can’t go a vegetable or fruit to save my life, but I am happy to take the over abundant produce that my friends tend to have.

  4. Mmmm! A combination of a couple of my favourite things 🙂 Yum Yum i can’t wait to try!

  5. Looks delicious! I love cooking/baking with coconut. I’d love to try this if I can get my hands on some papaya.

  6. You know, I can get ALL of those ingredients here… except the papaya! 🙁

    Looks amazing.


    1. Awww…Funny, but I remember eating some kind of HUGE papaya when I was in Australia. I think it was called New Guinea Papaya or something? Am I crazy, or is there such thing somewhere there? If you came to Hawaii I would make you some!

      1. No – you’re not crazy – we call it pawpaw in Australia. It took me a while to convert to the American term. (I kept forgetting what Americans call it.)

  7. I’m so happy you enjoyed this cake! It’s so unique and the texture is absolutely amazing…I love that you added extra papaya. Thank you so much for your kind words about my upcoming e-book!
