Simple Coconut Cake with Seven-Minute Frosting

Layer cakes are beautiful but they take a lot of time to make so I make cakes like those on special occasions only. For ordinary days, I like to bake one-layer cake such as this cake..very simple and easy and yet, it gives the same fix when you’re hankering for a coconut cake. 🙂

SEVEN MINUTE FROSTING
Makes enough to top a one-layer 9″ round cake

Ingredients:

1 large egg white
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
pinch of cream of tartar
pinch of salt
a drop of vanilla extract

Here’s How:

Put about 1 1/2 cups of water to a boil in a medium-size pot, bring to a boil over high heat. Lowet heat to medium to maintain a steady simmer.

Meanwhile, place the egg white, sugar, cream of tartar and salt into a medium size-mixing bowl. Place the bowl over the simmering water and immediately begin beating with an electric hand mixer set to low speed. Beat for 1 minute and then increase the speed to high and continue to beat for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and beat in the coconut and vanilla extract for 1 minute. Allow the frosting to sit for 5 minutes before using.

Have a nice day! 🙂 God Bless!
