Coconut Coconut Milk Cake

Coconut Coconut Milk Cake


"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."

  • Ready In

  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.

From a previous review, I lowered the temp to 325 and cooked normal time. It was a bit brown on the bottom, next time will cook for 40 minutes. If you like the coconut, double it; I could barely...
