Jamie's Crazy Easy Fresh Coconut Cake
The meat grinder makes the coconut real mushy, but still preserves some of the shape and juice. I soak my cake layers with the coconut juice that I drain from the whole coconut.
Then the icing is like this - Take a bowl of whipped cream, cup of sour cream, about 2/3 box of confectioners sugar, some vanilla flavoring all mixed together. then I add in the fresh ground coconut.
I load the cake down with this icing, just huge gobs of it. It's so good, I could skip the cake and just eat the icing. I like to do 3 layers so I can load it up with more icing."
Note: Being the cake layers are soaked in coconut water, adding more layers is more difficult. Some may find that a sheet cake is the best and easiest to handle.
I just love this recipe and it is a keeper for sure.
