sifted cake flour
2 1/2 teaspoons
butter at room temperature
The cake is delicious! I added 1 cup of fresh grated coconut to the prepared batter. The cake was even better the second day. I used the Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting from this website. The frosting was loose and made a mess out of the cake...but it was tasty!
Pretty sure the author meant to beat the sugar with the butter until fluffy...
This cake is wonderful. I'm surprised it doesn't have more reviews. Very easy to make and turns out very moist and delicious. I used 2 tsp. of vanilla, no almond extract, and added a cup of sweetened coconut flakes to the batter. Also, I used three 8" pans which made a taller cake. Frosted it with the buttercream frosting from this site and sprinkled more coconut on top. It looked magnificent, very impressive. No one would ever guess how easy it was to make. I'll definitely be making this again.
I love anything with coconut so this recipe was perfect! The cake turned out moist, fluffy and flavourful. The only thing I would change would be to add grated coconut in the cake.
I followed the recipe except I had to substitute margarine for the butter because I didn't have any.
I didn't add filling and iced it with white icing. Delicious!
Ingredients does list the sugar however Directions does not say to beat SUGAR with butter until fluffy. I almost missed adding it to the batter. Other than that, this was a very easy cake to put together. I opted to bake in a 9X13 baking pan @ 350*. I added 1 teaspoon of coconut extract to the batter as well as the vanilla & almond extract called for in recipe. I frosted with cream cheese frosting that I added some coconut extract, shredded coconut and a little of the leftover coconut milk. Yum!!!!! Just don't forget to add the sugar.
Hello from Russia!This cake disappeared immidiately right after being cooked with the help of my whole family of four! Fabulous!
