This is a 3-layer white batter cake with chopped pecans and coconut flakes covered with cream cheese frosting. Pre-heat oven to 350°(180° celsius), lightly grease with butter and flour two 8 or 9 inch cake pans. To frost the cake, spot the initial layer on a huge plate prime side down, spread with roughly 1 cup of frosting, spot the second cake prime side down and frost with remaining frosting. Otherwise, I enjoy the thought of the pastry cream in the layers rather of frosting! Drizzle a couple tablespoons of coconut syrup over the inner” side (the a single that seems most porous) of every layer.
Employing the incorrect end of a wooden spoon, poke holes around 1 inch apart until entire cake has been poked. The cake quickly served 4 happy cake eaters with a small left over, a bit to all of our surprise. If you are searching for a ‘fancy’ coconut cake recipe, Paula Deen has a wonderful 1. I would like to add that, like some other people, I could not discover sweetened shredded coconut anywhere so I just applied unsweetened.
I’ve been attempting quite a few diverse coconut cakes lately and I assume your version (with your frosting) turned out the very best. 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 small amount dropped from a spoon back into the pan produced a hair-like string. Then you can add the cream cheese spread” with out the sugar drawing the liquid out of the cream cheese. I have produced dozens of cakes, but this 1 is just stumping me. I could have to use a buttercream/cream cheese frosting I located on one more site. Stir together sugar, sour cream, milk and coconut in a bowl till effectively blended.
This recipe was offered by a chef, restaurant or culinary specialist and could have been scaled down from a bulk recipe. It was fine until I place it in the fridge for a couple of to let it stiffen up some ahead of frosting.. and then it was like it just broke apart. Followed the recipe specifically (used salted butter – oops) Surely use parchment paper for this cake, it is stick-ily delicious!
NOTE ON TIMING: This cake has quite a few actions, but none of them are specifically difficult. Using electric mixer, beat sugar, cream cheese, butter, and vanilla in huge bowl till blended. My daughter was graduating from college and my cousin presented to bake the cake. Add confectioners’ sugar, 1 Tablespoon coconut milk/cream, vanilla extract, and salt with the mixer operating on low. Retain the cake in the refrigerator, but let sit out for about 30 minutes before slicing and serving so the frosting will be soft. Do this many times to release air bubbles and assure you of a much more level cake.
