Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Coconut Cake works really well with Cream Sherry, Port, and Port Wine. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port. You could try NV Johnson Estate Cream Sherry. Reviewers quite like it with a 5 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 19 dollars per bottle.

NV Johnson Estate Cream Sherry

Very aromatic with notes of hazelnut, vanilla, and a touch of oak followed by sweet raisins and a touch of yeast. Clean lasting finish. Good now but will reward those allow it to age"". A favorite pre-prandial beverage. Consider it with nuts before dinner as an aperitif, or after dinner with dessert, especially chocolates and fruit-based desserts. Also wonderful on cold afternoons, served with biscotti to dip in ""Italian-style"". "

Instructions

Grease 2 cake pans dust with flour In a large bowl, beat egg whites and whole egg with a fork. Add coconut milk, vanilla and coconut extract and stir until well combined. Combine sugar, flour, baking powder and salt. Add butter to dry ingredients one small piece at a time and beat until resembles coarse meal with pea-sized bits. Using a mixer, add one cup of the coconut milk mixture and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in the remaining coconut milk mixture. Add the dessicated coconut to the batter and combine well. Pour batter into cake pans and bake at 325 degrees (160 C) until golden brown. Cool, remove from pans and frost with coconut buttercream icing. FOR BUTTERCREAM: -Combine egg whites, granulated sugar and salt in a bowl and set the bowl over a saucepan containing 1 1/2 inches of simmering water. Whisk constantly until mixture is opaque and registers about 120 degrees on a candy thermometer (about 2 minutes). Remove bowl from heat and using a mixer, beat on high speed until the mixture is barely warm (about 80 degrees). This should take about 7 minutes. Reduce speed to medium and add butter one piece at a time. Beat in coconut extract and coconut milk. Beat in powdered sugar and dessicated coconut.
