Food Friday: Coconut Cake

Did you see Evy’s birthday post {HERE}? If you did, then you saw her coconut cake. We LOVE this cake. This is the perfect birthday cake for a little girl, or even great for a wedding or baby shower. It doesn’t just look great but it tastes AMAZING!!

Unfortunately, I cannot take credit for this cake. My sister in law found the recipe in the June 1994 Bon Appetite Magazine and kept it on her cookbook shelf. She has made it every year for my niece’s birthday and when Evy had her first birthday, I decided I would carry on the tradition. It’s just such a feminine and yummy cake.

Years ago, I copied the recipe out of the magazine and kept it on hand. I started getting requests for the recipe, so I scanned it and loaded it on my computer. I searched and searched the internet this week to see if Bon Appetite had it on their website so I could link up to it, but I literally could not find it ANYWHERE. I have no idea if any of this is legal, but I created a download for you. Yikes. Hopefully I don’t get arrested. ha.

Here is the first page of the magazine, just click on it and you can download the two pages.

I don’t have step by step instructions for this, sorry. But I can tell you, don’t over beat the cake and make sure you don’t squash the egg whites when folding in. Oh, and make sure you shake the can of coconut milk REALLY WELL, before you open it.

I hope you enjoy this cake as much as we do.

Have a good recipe? Then let leave the link to it in the comment section so we can all check it out! Or do your own Food Friday on your blog.

    This cake is AMAZING! Let’s just say, if a piece hadn’t been saved for me at my baby shower, I wouldn’t have gotten any. (It was GONE in minutes!)
