Coconut Cake

Moist and Delicious Coconut Cake
I am always on the mission to find a good old fashioned recipe; which is also healthy and delicious. I have found this recipe from the ‘King Arthur Flour’ and decided to give it a try. The only thing I altered was the amount of sugar and it satisfied our taste buds better I believe; otherwise, it would be overly sweet for us.

Ingredients:
3 cups Cake flour
2/3 cup Coconut milk powder
½ teaspoon Salt 
4 teaspoons Baking powder
141 grams Unsalted butter
½ cup + ¼ cup Castor sugar
6 Egg whites
1½ teaspoons Vanilla extracts
4 drops Coconut flavouring

Steps:
Step 1: Preheat the oven for 1800C; prepare the cake pan i.e. line the baking paper as well as butter and flour the cake pan (I used a 13”x9” cake pan).

Step 2 (bowl1) : Whisk flour, coconut milk powder, salt and baking powder together; set it aside.

Step 3 (bowl 2): Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy for about 3 minutes; add ¼ amount of the combined dry ingredients; beat on low speed.

Step 4 (bowl 3): Add egg whites, milk and flavouring together.

Step 5 (bowl 2): Add 1/3 of white mixture; alternatively adding the combined dry ingredients and white mixture; make sure you end with the combined dry ingredients.

Step 6: Pour the mixture into the prepared cake pan and bake according to each individual time that requested. I baked for 45 minutes.

Step 7: Leave in the cake pan to cool for 20 minutes and remove from the cake pan to cool completely.

Happy baking!
