Mom Eva is going to be 96 on October 12th, and with this in mind, I have decided to post one of her favorite home baked cakes, called Mom Eva´s Coconut & Orange Cake.  
 
Mom Eva´s Coconut Orange Cake ...
 
INGREDIENTS ...
 
1 cup sugar
125 grams butter room temperature or 1/2 cup
1 tsp. finely grated orange zest
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup whole milk or 250 ml.
2 1/2 cups cake flour ( see number 2 and number 4)
2 tsps. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
6 egg whites
1 cup shredded coconut ( fresh or dried variety )
 
1) cream the sugar and the butter
2) add the zest, vanilla extract, milk and 2 cups of flour
3) combine thoroughly
4) add the remaining flour, which has been sifted with the baking poweder and the salt
5) fold the well beaten egg whites in stiffly
6) pour into 3 nine inch ( 23 cm. ) cake pans
7) bake in a 350 farenheit oven or 180 degree centigrade oven until cake has risen, and then increase the heat to 400 farenheit or 200 centigrade degrees until cake is done
8) cool the 3 cakes and remove the brown crusts.
9) spread icing ( recipe below ) and sprinkle the grated coconut in between each layer on the sides and the top of the cake
 
ICING ...
 
2 1/4 cups sugar
3/4 cups chilled water or 186 ml.
1/4 tsp. baking powder
3 egg whites stiffly beaten with a whisk or electrically
1/2 lemon ( the juice )
1 tsp. vanilla extract
 
1) Boil the sugar, water, baking powder until they are completely combined.
2) Drizzle gradually over the egg whites whisking without stopping, and add the lemon juice & vanilla. Blend extremely well.
3) sprinkle shredded coconut on the top and then, on the sides. One can utilise a wooden spatula and place with a "dip"  movement ...   ( see photo )
 
Serve with a cordial of Coconut licor of choice and an Espresso.
 
ENJOY,
Marge.
