Description

For coconut lovers only! A white coconut cake with coconut pudding. Topped with Coconut whipped cream and toasted coconut.


Ingredients

  • 1 Box White cake mix
  • 4 Large egg whites
  • 1/3 C Oil
  • 1 C Milk
  • 3 tsp Coconut extract
  • 3/4 C Coconut

For the topping

  • 2 pkg Instant Coconut pudding (3.4oz)
  • 4 C Milk
  • 2 C Heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 C Powdered sugar
  • 3 tsp Coconut extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine white cake mix, egg whites, oil, milk and coconut extract. Mix until all ingredients until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Bake cake in 9×13” for 20-22 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the middle of the cake. If the toothpick comes out clean, you cake is done. Allow
  4. to cool for 10 minutes.
  5. While the oven is still on, toast the coconut. Spread out on a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper or baking mat. Bake until coconut starts to turn golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  6. While the cake is still warm, take the end of a wooden spoon or another round object and poke holes all over the top of your cake.
  7. When the cake has cooled, prepare the pudding layer by mixing instant coconut pudding with 4 cups of cold milk. Before the pudding sets, pour it over the top of the cake slowly and put the cake in the fridge to let the pudding set, about 15 minutes. The longer it sets the better.
  8. Prepare the whipped cream. Put the bowl and whisk attachment in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to get them really cold (this step is optional, but a common practice I use.). In cold mixing bowl, pour in heavy whipping cream and beat on medium speed for about 3 minutes. Add powdered sugar and coconut extract. Mix and increase speed to medium high. Beat until stiff peak form.
  9. Spread whipped cream over the top of cake. Sprinkle with toasted coconut. This cake must stay refrigerated.
