Full Page | 3X5 Card | 4X6 Card No Rating No Reviews Cake: Basic 1-2-3-4 Cake but substitute
1 cup canned, unsweetened coconut milk for regular milk, recipe follows

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

Frosting 1 recipe 7-minute Frosting 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 pans as you prepare to stack and
fill. Remove first layer and invert onto cake plate. Using the wrong end of a wooden spoon, poke
holes approximately 1-inch apart until entire cake has been poked. Spread 1/3 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 cake from shifting).

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

Yield: 1 (3-layer) cake Preparation time: 30 minutes Cooking time: 25 minutes Ease of
preparation: Easy

Basic 1-2-3-4 Cake: 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature 2 cups sugar 4 eggs 3 cups sifted
self-rising flour 1 cup milk 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease and flour 3 (9-inch) cake pans. Using an electric mixer, cream butter until fluffy. Add sugar
and continue to cream well for 6 to 8 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each
addition. Add flour and milk alternately to creamed mixture, beginning and ending with flour. Add
vanilla and continue to beat until just mixed. Divide batter equally among prepared pans. Level
batter in each pan by holding pan 3 or 4 inches above counter, then dropping it flat onto counter.
Do this several times to release air bubbles and assure you of a more level cake. Bake for 25 to 30
minutes or until done. Cool in pans 5 to 10 minutes. Invert cakes onto cooling racks. Cool
completely and spread cake layers with your favorite frosting to make a 3-layer cake.

Yield: 3 layer cakes Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 25 to 30 minutes Ease of
preparation: Easy

7-Minute Frosting: 1 1/2 cups sugar
5/4 teaspoon cream of tartar or 1 tablespoon white corn syrup
6/8 teaspoon salt
7/3 cup water 2 egg whites 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Place sugar, cream of tartar or corn syrup, salt, water, and egg whites in the top of a double
boiler. Beat with a handheld electric mixer for 1 minute. Place pan over boiling water, being sure
that boiling water does not touch the bottom of the top pan. (If this happens, it could cause your
frosting to become grainy). Beat constantly on high speed with electric mixer for 7 minutes. Beat
in vanilla.

Yield: Frosting for 1 layer cake or approximately 8 to 12 cup cakes Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 7 minutes Ease of preparation: easy
