How to Make The Most Amazing Coconut Cake| The Stay At Home Chef


Today on The Stay At Home Chef I’m showing you how to make The Most Amazing Coconut Cake This cake is full of the most amazing coconut
flavor I promise you this will be one of the best coconut cakes you’ve ever had. To start you’ll need 1/2 cup of salted softened
butter Plop it into a mixing bowl along with 1/2 cup of vegetable oil and 1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar and we’re going to cream this together for
2 minutes Once it’s nice and smooth and creamy we’re going to add in 6 egg whites We’re going to beat these in and make them
nice and fluffy I like to give it a good 90 seconds to 2 minutes of whipping to make sure you whip a lot of air into those egg whites which will make our cake nice and fluffy Next we’ll add in our remaining wet ingredients You’ll need 1/4 cup of sour cream 2 teaspoons of coconut extract and then 1 1/2 cups of coconut milk I’m using the kind of coconut milk that comes
from a can but you can also use the refrigerated kind that comes in a carton Then we’ll just mix this in Once it’s mixed in you’ll add in 4 teaspoons of baking powder 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 3 1/2 cups of cake flour And you’ll want to mix this until it’s just
combined You don’t want to over mix this or your cake might collapse when baking Next preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease 2 or 3 nine inch cake pans and line the bottom with a little bit of parchment
paper Divide the batter up amongst the pans and you can have either 3 thin cakes or 2 thicker ones Since always love the look of a three layer
cake I’m doing three layers today Next we’re going to bake these for about 25 to 30 minutes until the cakes are cooked through While the cakes are baking we can put together a coconut cream cheese frosting You’ll need 16 ounces of softened cream cheese Plop that into a large mixing bowl along with 1 cup of softened salted butter and 1 teaspoon of coconut extract and beat this together Give that a good 2 minutes of beating to incorporate a lot of air into it and make
it light and fluffy Then we’re going to add in 3 cups of powdered
sugar I like to add it in about 1 cup at a time so that it easily mixes in without flying
everywhere Once your powdered sugar is all incorporated your frosting is done I like to transfer it all to disposable piping
bags to make it easy to frost the cake Once the cakes are completely cool we are ready to assemble. You want to frost in between all of the layers Then I use an offset spatula to smooth it
out Just smooth that out Then we’ll put on another layer and put more frosting on that one too Once you have all three layers assembled you’ll want to frost the outside as well And it doesn’t even have to be pretty because then you’re going to press coconut flakes onto the sides and top And that’s it, you’re ready to slice and serve!

  1. I'm going to be using this recipe this delicious looking recipe thanks for the awesome tutorial I'm definitely going to try this thank you!!!!!!!! ????????

  2. I made a cake with your vanilla frosting that has almond extract in it. It was the best frosting I’ve ever made!

  3. Just a couple of thoughts here.  First – pre-heat your oven BEFORE you start the cake batter.  Also I would add the baking soda/powder and salt to the cake flour and whisk it in before adding it to the batter.

  4. So, Ive tried this recipe and it is awesome!!! It is super moist and fluffy. I loved that when I baked them, they came out of the cake pan SO easily. They were also sturdy enough to stack and layer. (Without compromising the moisture inside the cake) ? thanks for sharing this recipe.

  5. Too much sugar and fats .. mmmm .. nice cake ? but sorry i won’t sacrifice my body fitness for such a HEAVY ingredients !

  6. You are a very beautiful cake Artist ??? a very elegant coconut cake ???!!! In a very simple brief description of baking and decorating ???a very good video ??? … Thanks a lot and please do keep on with the best as Usual ????

  7. Omg you make the best cakes in the world. By any chance do you a recipe for German chocolate cake and coconut pecan frosting. I have been looking for a good recipe. Then I remember you make the best cakes. I really appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you so much for being such a great inspiration. I get so happy and forget my problems whenever I see any of your videos on YouTube. I have severe nerve damage in my legs I can only stand up barely seconds so basically I had to give up practically my life, hanging out with friends working, everything. I get depressed a lot. The thing that saved me is when I discovered your YouTube channel I’ve always love baking and with my special walker I can continue that it’s a little difficult but I manage. you can tell by watching your channel you are such a loving and caring person your voice is so soothing and your baking is out of this world I would think you just being you. For being inspiration and been one heck of a baker always your fan Robert Saldivar.

  8. I cant bake 3 layers at the same time. Can the third layer wait till the first ones are baked or do I have to bake immediately?

  9. I love love coconut cake and this is just the recipe I needed for the holiday season ??thank you.

  10. Made this today…it lives up to its name! It was 2 layered and I filled with a cream cheese light filling made with 1 tub cool whip, 1 8oz. softened Cream cheese, 1/3 c. Sugar, 1/2 c. Sour cream, and 1 tsp. Coconut extract. Beat until smooth and creamy then gently fold in cool whip just till blended …fill cooled cakes then frost with cream cheese frosting as directed…it was a hit! Thank you Stay At Home Chef!

  11. I've just made this sponge for the upcoming new year. I'm from Russia:)btw
    It came out A-MAAAA-ZING . Fluffy,moist,a little oily, like all sponges should be
    how delightful!
    Thank you for the recipe :*

  12. Made this a few hours ago. Came out of the oven looking & feeling fluffy. Just gave it a taste, and I am happy to report that I am not disappointed!

    Been on the hunt for a really good coconut cake. This is the best I have tried so far.

  13. This is the first coconut cake that I’ve seen on YT that actually has coconut milk in it! Although I already have a coconut recipe that I love (yes it has coconut milk), I’m not against trying yours to taste.

  14. Thank you ….i bake it and my family just couldn't stop eating this delicious cake, it didn't last?? I made some variation crème pâtissière as the filling and some blackberry/blueberry sauce as decor?

  15. Girllllllll…this cake was slamming!!I made my boo this cake and he purposed to me the next day! Thanks on giving me tips on trapping a man with a cake pan!

  16. This cake looks amazing!!! But I would like to know if this cake turns dry or hard when I put into the fridge?
    Thank you!!

  17. Omg thanks so much. This is my first time baking a really really good cake, thanks to you!
    It not only looks beautiful but tastes so good.
    My bf loved it. He said it was perfect! Thanks for sharing your love of baking with us.

    I cut the recipe in half and did a buttercream frosting I didn’t have cream cheese and it still came out amazing.

  18. I would use unsalted butter since the recipe calls for salt. Also, I would whip the egg whites with 1/4 cup sugar separately until they form soft peaks and then I would fold it into the batter. This will airate the cake better.

  19. The cake looks delicious but for me, nothing comes close to the 7 minute icing for coconut cakes. I'd love it if you could demonstrate that one some time. Thanks for the videos!

  20. I love all her recipes. Each one it better than the other? my only request is to please make a carrot cake, it’s my favorite cake and i would love to know your recipe. Keep up hun❤️❤️

  21. I made this cake today. It was not as fluffy as I would have liked but it was pretty good. I ended up throwing it away and will try again tonight. TFS. Update. I accidentally used cornstarch instead of baking powder LOL. Moving too fast in my kitchen

  22. I wish I had reviewed the video! The printed instructions combine the steps of whipping the egg-whites until airy and then folding them in. An experienced baker would have probably have done that by instinct, and it makes a huge difference. I have a delicious cake about 2" high! Next time . . .

  23. Hi, thanks for posting ur recipes, dey are always amazing. I made ur vanilla cake nd it is my favourite recipe till date. Is it possible to substitute d coconut milk in dis recipe wit home made coconut milk or regular milk, i couldn't find store bought coconut milk in my area.

  24. If i want to make a smaller cake, can i just cut all the measurements in half? Will it still come out yummy?

  25. Can i substitute the sour cream with greek yogurt or anything else? Because it is very hard to find it here, thank you for the recipe?

  26. I've tried itt, and although i substitute the sour cream with greek yoghurt, it still came out amazing? the cake is moist and crumblyy, do not hesitate to try these!

  27. Very informative video with great cinematography, but oh God, some of the cuts are so frustrating – the ones where she doing something, such as mixing the batter, and it cuts to her finishing it, while explaining – but, hell yeah, coconut cake is bomb! <3

  28. Is it half cup of salted butter for the frosting? Instead of 1 cup? It looks like a stick of butter (meaning 1/2 cup of butter) cut in half.

  29. Check out this tip. After cutting a slice, add a couple spoonfuls of coconut water (like plain Vita Coco) over the cake part of the slice. It will take it to the next level.

  30. Im in a beginner level in baking and I tried this cake.The cake collapsed but tasted so delicious!!Thank you for the recipe.

  31. i made this right now and want to say just i love this cake. i change only cream cose my childrem dont love cheese cream so i made custard cream. thank you so easy and good result
