Coconut Cake Recipe





* Maida - 3 cups

* Sugar - 2 cups

* Eggs - 4 (yellow and whites seperated)

* Vanilla Extract - 1 tsp

* Baking Soda - 1 tsp

* Salt - a pinch

* Milk/Coconut water - 1 cup



* Beat the butter with a hand mixer until it is fluffy.

* Add sugar and egg yolks to this and continue to mix it.

* Mix all the dry ingredients (flour, salt and baking soda) seperately in a bowl.

* Add the dry ingredients and milk alternately to the butter mixture and continue to mix it.

* Add the vanilla extract to the batter.

* Beat the egg whites seperately till stiff peaks are formed.

* Fold in the egg whites gently with the cake batter.

* Transfer the batter to 2-3 cake pans (depending on the size of the pan) and bake it for 25-30 minutes in a oven preheated to 350 degee.

* Check if the cakes are done by inserting a toothpick. The cake is cooked if the toothpick comes out clean.

* Cool the cakes completely before applying the frosting.

* For the frosting, I've done a simple whipped cream icing with sweetened shredded coconut flakes all over.
