Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Our favorite -- everyone wants this for their birthday cake! It is especially delicious with the White Frosting recipe, below.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • In a large bowl, cream together 2 cups sugar and 3/4 cup shortening. Add 3 egg yolks, and beat well.
  • Chop coconut fine in a food processor; whisk together with flour and baking powder. Stir these ingredients alternately with 1 cup milk into the creamed mixture; beat well. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Lastly, fold in whipped egg whites.
  • Grease and flour either two 9 inch layer pans, or one 9 x 13 inch pan. Pour batter into prepared pans.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 30 minutes for 2 layers, about 45 minutes for 9 x 13 inch pan. Check with toothpick, and by touching lightly in the center ( it should spring back when done).
  • To Make White Frosting: Shake 6 tablespoons flour and one cup milk in a jar. In a saucepan, cook mixture until thick, stirring constantly. Cool.
  • Beat 1 cup sugar, butter or margarine, and 1/2 cup shortening until smooth and fluffy with mixer. Add cooled flour and milk mixture, and beat well. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla.
