Winter Cake

WHAT IS WINTER CAKE

It is a white cake that is covered in frosting and coconut flakes.

I wanted to come up with a cake that celebrates winter!

And being it’s winter time in Canada, this cake seemed fitting.

Now i’ll be honest, I’m not a cake decorator.

Meaning, I hardly ever create a cake that is shop worthy, looks wise.

However, I am a good baker and so you can expect this cake to be super moist on the inside and packed full of the most delicious coconut flavors you could ever want on the outside. 

WHAT FROSTING FOR A WINTER CAKE

This cake has a homemade cream cheese frosty that is covered in coconut flakes. 

Making for a beautiful winter inspired looking cake. Don’t you think?

The cake actually reminds me of snow and so I decided to add some snow to this photoshoot!

I think I got some stunning photos with this recipe. 

WHAT DOES WINTER CAKE TASTE LIKE

It is not overwhelming sugary , but there are hints of sweetness.

I much prefer to highlight the coconut flavors vs just sugar for this cake. 

So you defiantly will have a big bite full of those tasty coconut flakes. 

Like eating a snow storm on a plate 🙂

The awesome part about this cake is that you won’t have to spend all day in the kitchen baking it.

MAKING WINTER CAKE

Do not forget to use cake flour for this recipe, it really makes all the difference in how it tastes. 

A cake made from scratch and that takes less than an hour to make. 

COUNT ME IN!

Winter Cake

I know a lot of people dread the cold and what comes with that, but I think their is a lot to also be grateful for. 

Like snow, not everyone get’s to have a white Christmas.

How to Make Winter Cake

I used a square baking pan for this cake, however you can use a circular baking pan if desired or even double to recipe and create a layered cake.  

  • Start by preheating your oven to 350 f.
  • Then lightly grease with oil or butter a 9Ă—2 inch square (23 x 5 cm) = 10 cups (2.4 liters) pan.
  • Or line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper. 
  • Sift cake flour into a bowl then mix in the baking powder and salt.
  • In an separate bowl with an electric stand mixer cream sugar, butter and canola oil 
  • Then ix in egg yolks and extracts.
  • Blend in flour mixture and slowly adding in the coconut milk.
  • Separately whip egg whites with cream of tartar to stiff peaks.
  • Now fold 1/3 of the egg whites into cake batter at a time.
  • Pouring the batter into the square cake pan.
  • Bake until set, let cool completely then frost and finish with shredded coconut flakes
  • Enjoy.
