If you are ever in a pinch and want to make an extraordinary dessert, then this recipe is the one particular for you! This lemon coconut cake, which you need to make for every occasion this spring because of its enormous crowd appeal and towering magnificence, is anything to my tastebuds. As you can see, the recipe has worked for several other persons, so I’m hoping to assist you in discovering what happened with yours. The cake was moist, sweet, and complete of coconut flavor, and the frosting was sticky, like marshmallow fluff. I genuinely want to make this cake for Easter, but I can not refrigerate it when I bring it to a house, and it won’t be eaten for a handful of hours.
Immediately after I baked it and trimmed the tops, it was moist and soft (and delish), but after refrigerating the cake portions overnight, the cake was dense (but nonetheless delish). This is a good base cake for a lot of different flavors, and undoubtedly my new go to! I loved them, my little ones loved them, and all of my coconut cake-addicted good friends loved them.
I’ve been attempting quite a few unique coconut cakes recently and I feel your version (with your frosting) turned out the greatest. My mother taught me to cook the sugar syrup until it haired.” Strange term for a recipe I know but what it meant was to cook the syrup until a smaller quantity dropped from a spoon back into the pan made a hair-like string. Then you can add the cream cheese spread” without having the sugar drawing the liquid out of the cream cheese. I have made dozens of cakes, but this 1 is just stumping me. I could have to use a buttercream/cream cheese frosting I identified on yet another web site. Stir together sugar, sour cream, milk and coconut in a bowl until nicely blended.
Just the reality that you’ve nailed a ideal white cake…that’s not uncomplicated to do. Most are dry and not flavorful and just that aspect alone is a gem – but then the coconut and the pastry cream and the frosting! Taking inspiration from Tartine Bakery’s passionfruit/lime bavarian, in amongst three of the layers I spread lime sugar syrup and passionfruit curd (from a Martha Stewart recipe) and the other 2 layers the cream cheese frosting, which I doubled. I had two persons say to me that they did not like the mouthfeel of the large flakes of coconut. Stick to directions for Basic 1-2-3-4 Cake, substituting coconut milk for regular milk.
I’m not sure if canned coconut milk and carton coconut milk are the identical so if you could let me know what to use for the coconut milk in the cake that would be fantastic! For the very first two layers, which comprised the first two-layer cake, I used the Seven-Minute Frosting linked to in the recipe above. Homemade lemon curd and a thin layer of cream cheese frosting locate their way between each coconut cake layer.
