Yummy Recipes... Coconut Cake!


Hi there everyone! I thought I would take the next couple posts to post a few recipes some of my friends have been wanting! Sorry it took so long! First off we have a delicious coconut cake! I love this cake! I got the original recipe from a very good friend and neighbor! I was on vacation last and really wanted to make this moist coconut cake, and she was kind enough to email me the recipe. I had to alter it a little because of my limited resources. So, here's the easy method.






Coconut Cake
5 eggs
2 cp. Sugar
1 cp. Oil
2 cp. Flour
1 ½ tsp b. powder
½ tsp salt
½ cp. Coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp coconut extract
¾ cp. Coconut
1 cp. Toasted coconut
Sauce

½ cp sugar
¾ cp coconut milk
1 tsp. coconut extract
¼ cup butter


Preheat oven to350. Prepare a 9x13 pan. Grease with butter and sprinkle sugar.

Combine all your dry ingredients (flour, b powder, and salt) in medium bowl. In another bowl beat your eggs and sugar for about 1 minute. Add oil. Alternate dry ingredients and milk. Add extracts. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 mins or until toothpick comes out clean.

About 10 mins before our cake is done, combine all the ingredients for your sauce in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Lower heat to simmer until sugar is dissolved. Turn off

Take cake out of the oven, sprinkle our toasted coconut over the top, and then pour your hot sauce over the cake. Let cool for at least 30 mins. Enjoy!
