Coconut Cake

2:54 PM



This is from a site called seven spoons and it is a Coconut Cream Icebox Cake. I've posted this because it reminds me of Coconut Cake and I love Coconut Cake. If anything it's right after Red Velvet cake in my all time favourite cakes, granted a decent chocolate can give it some strong competition. To me a great coconut cake is light and melts in your mouth and the icing should have just a hint of sweetness so it doesn't overwhelm you. Also a good coconut cake, for me should be so good it makes you want to eat enough and leave the rest for later.

 This recipe is from All Recipes and I can't believe how simple it is. I can't wait to try it, especially with this icing.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flaked coconut

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan. Mix flour, baking powder and salt together and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time; beat well. Mix in coconut flavoring. Add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk, mixing well with each addition. Fold in coconut. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
