Coconut Coconut Milk Cake

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"This is a super moist and tasty coconut cake. Growing up in Brazil, this was a favorite amongst our circle of friends. It is especially good with a cup of coffee on the side. I've converted a few of my anti-coconut family and friends into lovers of this cake."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch cake pan.
  2. Beat sugar, butter, and egg yolks together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy; add shredded coconut.
  3. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Stir creamed butter mixture, alternating with coconut milk, into flour mixture until batter is just mixed.
  4. Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak. Fold egg whites into batter. Pour batter into the prepared cake pan.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 45 minutes.

I made this cake because I had some coconut milk that was starting to sour. We loved it! I made a few changes to make it healthier. Cut sugar to 1 1/2 c. and used 1/2 Stevia and 1/2 regular su...

Wish I had gone with my gut and not put the amount of baking soda called for in this recipe. It was horribly bitter. And it needs more sugar. It was very moist so perhaps with a little tweaking ...
