Coconut Cake

My coconut cake is so light! It feels like it could float away! I used coconut cream in the Italian meringue buttercream and it made all the difference! It gives a hint of real coconut flavor not that sunscreen taste you get from extracts! Adding sweetened toasted coconut flakes between each layer provides some texture and extra sweetness to compliment the mellow buttercream.

I’ve been wanting to make (another) coconut cake for a while now and I finally got around to it! Coconut cake is a favorite of mine and I wanted to make a light and dreamy cake while also giving a new decorating scheme a try. Got to mention, I LOVE the coconut Italian meringue buttercream, it’s really light and not too sweet!

For the Cake
2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 300g, plus extra for pans,
1/2 cup coconut flour 60g
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 6g
1 teaspoon kosher salt 6g
1/2 cup fresh coconut milk 118mL
1/2 cup fresh coconut cream 118mL
8 ounces unsalted butter 225g, room temperature
2 1/4 cups granulated sugar 450g
1 teaspoon vanilla 5mL
4 egg whites
For the Frosting
1½ cups granulated sugar 300g
6 egg whites
1½ cups unsalted butter 342g, at room temperature, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 5mL
¼ teaspoon kosher salt 1g, heaping
⅔ cup coconut milk 157mL
For the assembly
1 cup coconut flakes 75g, toasted
1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut 50g, toasted
1 foot parchment paper.


For the Cake
Preheat the panggangan to 350 degrees F. Butter 3 eight inch cake pans. Line the bottom of each pan with parchment paper. Oil the parchment paper and then flour the pan. Set aside.
Place the flour, coconut flour, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
In a glass, combine coconut milk, coconut cream, vanilla and give it a whisk.

Place the butter into the bowl of a stand mixer and using the paddle attachment, cream on medium speed until fluffy, approximately 1 minute. Decrease the speed to low and gradually add the sugar slowly over 1 to 2 minutes. Once all of the sugar has been added, stop the mixer and scrape down the sides. Turn the mixer back on to medium speed and continue creaming until the mixture noticeably lightens in texture and increases slightly in volume, approximately 2 to 3 minutes.
With the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture alternately with the milk mixture to the butter and sugar in 3 batches, ending with the milk mixture. Do not over mix.
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites into the batter, just until combined. Divide the batter evenly between the pans and bang the pans on the counter top several times to remove any air and to distribute the batter evenly in the pan. Place in the panggangan on the middle rack. Bake for 40 minutes or until the cake is light golden in color and centers are set.
For the Frosting
In a small, glass bowl, whisk together the sugar and egg whites. Place the bowl on top of a saucepan with about an inch of simmering water (Water shouldn't touch bowl). Heat the mixture, whisking occasionally, for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the mixture is hot to the touch and the sugar is dissolved (160F).
Remove the bowl from the heat and transfer the mixture into the bowl of an electric mixer. Using the whisk attachment, whip on medium-high until the mixture becomes a light, white meringue and the mixture is cool to the touch 8-10 minutes. Reduce the speed to low and add the butter a couple of pieces at a time. Increase the speed to medium and mix for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the butter is thoroughly incorporated and the frosting is smooth and glossy. The frosting may initially look curdled after adding the butter, but continue beating and it will come together, looking smooth and creamy by the end of the mixing time.
Add the vanilla extract, salt and coconut milk and whip for another few minutes on medium speed, or until the coconut milk is thoroughly incorporated and the frosting is smooth. If it's looking odd just keep whipping and it will come together. Use immediately. If making a bit in advance you'll just have to give it a quick whip before using.
To Assemble
Frost the first layer and sprinkle the shredded coconut on top. Repeat step as you assemble the layers. Give cake a smooth coat and then chill. Cut parchment paper pieces to a uniform width. Measure the height of the cake and fold parchment paper at that height. then cut triangles on top which are the length of the cake's radius.

Press the parchment paper pieces onto the cake and then press the coconut flakes onto the uncovered sections. Wipe away the excess and then peel off the paper. Enjoy!!
