Special ocassions around our house call for special things. This is a special occasion cake. It is the lightest and fluffiest cake you will ever taste!
- 3 cups coconut (not sweetened variety)
- ¾ cup softened butter
- 1 ½ cups sugar
- 3 eggs
- 2 ¼ cups Tom Sawyer Gluten Free Flour (or your GF flour blend)
- 2 tsp GF baking powder
- ½ tsp kosher salt
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 8 ounce softened cream cheese
- 8 ounce softened butter
- 1 bag of powdered sugar
To make the icing, cream butter and cream cheese. Add powdered sugar and whip on high for 2 minutes until fluffy.
Notes: I use fresh coconut left over and dried from making my coconut milk, but store-bought (unsweetened) works fine. Ice when fully cooled, or your icing may melt! Cake tastes most divine at room temperature, so if you are serving, set it out for about 20-30 minnutes prior to serving.
