Servings: 24


  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk


Step 1.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13-inch cake pan.

Step 2.
Beat sugar, butter, and egg yolks together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy; add shredded coconut.

Step 3.
Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Stir the creamed butter mixture, alternating with coconut milk, into flour mixture until the batter is just mixed.

Step 4.
Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak. Fold egg whites into batter. Pour batter into the prepared cake pan.

Step 5.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 45 minutes.
