For the Cake:

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut

For the Seven-Minute Frosting:

  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large egg whites
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For Garnish:

  • 1 cup toasted shredded coconut


Making the Cake:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Cream Butter and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened butter with granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add Eggs: Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  5. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, alternating with coconut milk. Begin and end with the flour mixture. Mix in the vanilla extract.
  6. Fold in Coconut: Gently fold in the shredded coconut.
  7. Bake: Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the cakes cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Making the Seven-Minute Frosting:

  1. Prepare Double Boiler: In the top of a double boiler (or a heatproof bowl over simmering water), combine sugar, egg whites, cream of tartar, and water.
  2. Beat the Mixture: Beat the mixture with an electric mixer on high speed for 7 minutes or until it forms stiff peaks.
  3. Add Vanilla: Remove from heat and beat in the vanilla extract until the frosting is thick and spreadable.

Assembling the Cake:

  1. Frost the Cake: Place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread a generous layer of frosting on top. Place the second cake layer on top and frost the top and sides of the entire cake.
  2. Garnish: Sprinkle the toasted shredded coconut on top and press gently onto the sides of the cake.
  3. Serve: Slice and serve this heavenly coconut cake to your delighted guests.
