Killer Coconut Cake: Part 2


Want a piece of this?

Did you complete Part 1?

Ready?  Then let’s get started on the killer part of this coconut creation, the cake!


Gather up the goods – vanilla extract, coconut cream (or coconut milk; you will only be using the cream on the top of the milk), butter, sugar, eggs, baking powder and flour.


Spray four 9” round cake pans with flour baking spray.


Add sugar and softened butter into a large bowl.


Now cream the butter and sugar.


Add egg yolks one at a time, blending well after each addition.


Beat in one egg white. Reserve the other three egg whites.


In medium bowl , wire whisk the flour, salt and baking powder together and set aside.


Alternately add flour mixture and coconut cream, blending well after each addition, then add the extracts.


When all the flour and coconut cream are added and blended you should have a beautiful batter.  Set it aside.


Now remember those three egg whites?  Beat them up until…


…they look like nice stiff peaks.


Gently fold the egg whites into the batter.


Pour and spread batter into the prepared pans.

Bake in a preheated 350°F for 20-25 min – until toothpick comes out clean.


Let cool on wire racks…just look at these golden beauties!
