My TNT quick coconut cake
1 Cup vegetable or canola oil
2/3 to 1 cup sugar
3 eggs, room temperature
few drops vanilla or some lemon zest
2 cups dessicated coconut
1 cup all-purpose flour sifted with 1-1/2 tsp baking powder and a fat pinch of salt
1/3 c sour cream
preheat oven to 315f.Grease and flour two 8 inch round cake pans or one 10 inch pan.
Mix together oil and sugar.Beat in eggs,one at a time.Add vanilla or lemon zest to it.Fold in coconut,flour+baking powder mixture and sour cream.Spoon into prepared pan or pans and bake for about 20 minutes for the layers and 30 minutes or so for a single layer.Check the doneness with the tooth pick.
The recipe calls for a generous amount of coconut or mint flavored syrup poured over the cake while its still warm,but i just let it cool and frosted with butter cream frosting..!
Don't let love interfere with your appetite. It never does with mine.
