MOM'S SOUTHERN COCONUT CAKE RECIPE - (4.4/5)



Mom's Southern Coconut Cake Recipe - (4.4/5) image

Provided by ladydee009

Number Of Ingredients 19

COCOUNUT CAKE:
5 egg whites
1/2 cup milk
1 to 2 tablespoons coconut flavoring or extract*
3 cups cake flour
2 1/3 cups sugar
4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
FROSTING:
12 ounces cream cheese, slightly chilled
1/2 cup plus 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
3 egg whites

Steps:

  • CAKE: Preheat oven to 350° F. Butter and flour two 8-inch cake pans and line with parchment paper Put the egg whites in a bowl and whisk slightly. Add 1/2 cup milk and coconut flavoring. Mix thoroughly. Set aside. In the mixing bowl of an electric mixer, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the butter and coconut milk and combine on low speed. Increase speed to medium and beat until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the egg white mixture in 3 additions, scraping down the sides of the bowl and mixing just long enough to incorporate between additions. Divide the batter among the prepared pans and bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool in their pans for 10 minutes, then turn them out onto cooling racks to cool completely. FROSTING: Put the cream cheese in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat on medium speed until fluffy and smooth. Add the butter 1-2 tablespoons at a time, mixing until smooth. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla and mix until creamy. Set aside. Combine the granulated sugar and water in a small heavy saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Continue to cook, without stirring, until the syrup reaches the soft-ball stage, 238 degrees F on a candy thermometer. Meanwhile, have the egg white in the bowl of an electric mixer, ready for when the syrup is at the proper temperature. Slowly add the hot syrup to the egg whites, while mixing on medium-low. When all of the syrup is incorporated, raise the speed to medium-high and beat until the mixture has cooled to body-temperature and it forms stiff peaks. With the mixer on medium-low, add the cream cheese and butter mixture one spoonful at a time. When all is incorporated, raise the speed to medium and whip until the frosting is smooth and fluffy. Frost the cooled cakes and cover with shredded coconut.

  • Pre-heat oven to 175 deg C (350 deg F). Grease the sides and base of two 9-inch (23-cm) round cake pans. Line the base in both pans with baking paper, then lightly grease the top of the paper.
  • Using an electric or hand-held mixer, whip cream cheese on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Beat in the icing sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, until well incorporated. Taste the frosting as you add each 1/4 cup of sugar, to your desired sweetness (you may need a little less or more), each time beating until fluffy. Pour in the cream, vanilla extract and rum (optional) and beat on medium speed for 1 minute. You may not need to add all the cream, if you prefer a thicker or pipeable consistency. Chill the frosting for 15 minutes, to firm it up a little, to make spreading easier.
  • When the cake layers are completely cool, using an offset spatula, spread 1/3 of the frosting on top of one layer, place the other layer on top, and spread another 1/3 of the frosting. With the remaining 1/3, spread a thin layer all around the sides. Smooth the top and sides of the cake. Using your palm, gently press in toasted coconut flakes on the sides. Scatter toasted, chopped pecans on top as desired.
