  • 1 3/4 c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. coconut flavoring
  • 3 c. sifted cake flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 c. milk
  • 1/3 c. plus
  • 3 tbsp. coconut
Cream butter; add sugar gradually, creaming until light. Add eggs, vanilla and coconut flavoring; beat until fluffy.
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; add dry ingredients to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating after each addition.
Beat 1 minute. Stir coconut into batter. Pour batter into two greased and lightly floured 9 x 1 1/2 inch round cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool 10 minutes, then remove from pans and continue cooling. Makes 12-16 servings.

  • 1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tbsp. buttermilk or milk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 c. sifted confectioners' sugar
  • Coconut (for top and sides of frosted cake)
Place first 5 ingredients in small mixing bowl in order listed.
Blend together with electric mixer, beating at medium speed for 3 minutes. If frosting is too soft, beat in a little extra sifted confectioners' sugar to obtain desired spreading consistency.
Spread frosting on cooled cake, then sprinkle frosted cake with coconut. Frosts tops and sides of two 8 or 9-inch layers, or top of a 9x13 inch cake. The coconut cake recipe is ready...enjoy !

1/3 c. plus ? what is this? then, the first sentence reads to creme butter- yet, ingredients for cake doesn't list butter. this recipe seems to be incomplete.
