How to make it

  • Cream butter well to incorporate air, gradually adding sugar.
  • Beat in egg yolks one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Sift together flour, baking powder, salt. Add dry ingredients to creamed butter mixture alternately with 1/2 cup water. Beat well. Add extract.
  • In a very clean bowl (one trick is to rub the bowl with vinegar), beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Fold gently into batter.
  • Turn mixture into 2 greased layer cake pans.
  • Bake in preheated 350°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center is nearly clean and cake springs back when pressed lightly in center.
  • When cake is cooled, frost with a boiled frosting, seven-minute frosting, or all-white Mountain or coconut frosting.
  • Sprinkle with freshly grated coconut.
