89

If you like pina coladas because of the coco lopez cream of coconut that's in the drink, and you like coconut, and you like coconut cake, this recipe is for you! This is THE BEST coconut cake I have ever had. I have made this cake for the past 10 years for my friend, Tracy, on her birthday. A tip before you get the mixer going...whisk the cream of coconut in a bowl...I promise, it will come together. And, beat your egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff but not dry

12
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 3/4 cup sugar
1 cup canned sweetened cream of coconut
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large bag of sweetened shredded coconut
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temp
4 large eggs, separated
1 cup buttermilk
Preheat oven to 350. Butter and flour two 9" cake pans. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl to blend. Using standing or hand mixer, beat sugar, butter and sweetened cream of coconut in large bowl until fluffy. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla extract. On low speed, beat in dry ingredients and then buttermilk, each just until blended. Fold beaten egg whites into batter. Divide cake batter between prepared pans. Bake cakes until tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool cakes in pans on rack and cool completely. Place one cake layer on cake plate, flat side up.. Spread with layer of frosting and sprinkle with coconut over whole layer. Spread another layer of frosting on second layer, flat side up, then flip over onto first cake layer. A fast flip is best as you shouldn't really hesitate, but if it lands a little crooked, no problem. you can adjust the layers quite easily. Spread remaining frosting over top and sides of cake. Sprinkle remaining coconut over cake, gently pressing into sides to adhere. You can make the cake the day before and just wrap in plastic, then frost the next day.
