Jamie’s Coconut Cake – a Recipe From Paula Deen

Servings: 1 three-layer cake
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Difficulty: Easy

Basic 1-2-3-4 Cake recipe, but substitute 1 cup canned, unsweetened coconut milk for regular milk

3/4 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
4 Tablespoons milk
1/2 cup flaked, sweetened coconut

7 Minute Frosting recipe
Flaked, sweetened coconut for sprinkling

Follow directions for Basic 1-2-3-4 Cake, substituting coconut milk for regular milk. While cake is baking, prepare filling. Stir together sugar, sour cream, milk and coconut in a bowl until well blended. Remove cake layers from oven and allow cake to remain in pan as you prepare to stack and fill. Remove first layer and invert onto cake plate. Using the wrong end (handle) of a wooden spoon, poke holes approximately one inch apart until entire cake has been poked. Spread one third of filling mixture on cake layer. Top with second layer, repeat process. Top with last layer and repeat process again. (As I stack layers together, I stick them with toothpicks to prevent the cake from shifting.) You can place the cake in the refrigerator for up to three days to allow it to absorb the filling mixture.

7-Minute Frosting
Servings: Frosting for 1 layer cake or approximately 8-12 cupcakes
Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 7 min
Difficulty: Easy

1/3 cup water
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar or 1 Tablespoon white corn syrup
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 egg whites
1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Place sugar, cream of tartar or corn syrup, salt, water and egg whites into a mixing bowl and beat for one minute with a handheld electric mixer. Using the double boiler method, place the bowl over the top of rapidly boiling water, making sure that boiling water does not touch the bottom of the top bowl. (If this happens, it could cause your frosting to become grainy.) Beat constantly on high speed with electric mixer for 7 minutes. Remove the bowl from the boiler and gently stir in vanilla with a spatula.

Prepare 7-Minute Frosting. Frost top and sides of cake. Sprinkle top and sides of cake with additional coconut.
