But I’m whole stick of that stuff there and we’re gonna just mix it. until it is combined perfectly combined okay I think I have my mixer like on medium speed or whatever just mix it until it looks like this right here.


  • 3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 cup salted butter softened
  • 1 ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 3 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp pure almond extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cup whole buttermilk
  • 15 oz package sweetened flaked coconut divided
  • 1 ½ cup pecan pieces toasted divided
  • Frosting:
  • 2 [8] oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup [2 sticks] butter
  • 3 lb powdered sugar
  • 3 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp pure almond extract
  • reserved coconut toasted
  • ½ cup reserved toasted pecans

So going over there and check it out all right. I’ve separated my egg yolks and my egg whites we’re gonna set those whites aside but we’re gonna use those egg yolks and we’re gonna add in one at a time or two at a time.

Once nothing that y’all see that we’re gonna mix it up. add the egg yolks one at a time and then mix after each egg yolk. okay just like the odds make sure you mix it up really really want to get this nice and combined a low cen nice and combined.

I say it a lot I know and it was it like this right here that’s pretty all yellow and stuff but that’s how they look. now I have some cake flour and some baking soda I’m gonna mix in my baking soda with the cake flour give it a little whisk it nice and combined just like that and now it’s time to alternate between our buttermilk and our cake flour make sure you use real wholesome buttermilk.

Don’t do that whole um cow’s milk and lemon juice technique to make buttermilk go buy some buttermilk. We’re gonna start with the buttermilk mix it in add a little bit of flour mix it in and we’re gonna repeat that process ending with the buttermilk.

Because that make sense I hope so I’ve got to keep up now keep up but that’s how I look when you get it all blended and stuff that’s a pretty banner I love this banner it’s so soft and fluffy.

Just keep on mixing them until they get really fluffy want them to hold a nice stiff peak when you’re done like that okay and then just go ahead and place those fluffy egg whites into the batter.

Go ahead just fold them into the batter and just start up just into the egg whites are combined okay and that’s it you don’t want to over store you don’t have a dry cake on your hand.

All right now go ahead and pour the batter evenly into three cake pans I always you know get it. uneven I don’t know why there’s like things you can buy but Megan that way okay so go ahead get them a little shade to get them nice and uniform you’re going to bake this for about 25 to 27 minutes.

When it comes out of the oven let them cool in the pan for about five minutes okay they’ll continue cooking for that five minutes. then after that go ahead and use a spatula or a knife just kind of run it along the edges of the cake.

Just to kind of loosen them up a bit and remove them from the pan one may tear I had like two that kind of tore a little bit this. okay it’s got to make sure you really grease and flour those pins like really really good all right now while the cake is cooling off.

We are going to make that yummy frosting I have my powdered sugar into a bowl. I’m going to add in some softened cream cheese I used to block CS mail and then a stick of butter.

Because it’s ice and it’s frosting is not playing around we’re gonna mix it up just like this until it is super creamy like that yummy you can also add in some vanilla extract I couldn’t find mine.

I like lost don’t know how I lose like vanilla extract while I’m clicking I don’t know but here’s how look nice influx I’m going to add in some more process coconut flakes so I have put in the food processor and then some pecans.

You can also have pecans in the batter. but I don’t like to do that I like to just put it in the frosting.

I don’t like it in the batter’s too much too much right now go ahead just stir that up and we are done there’s that classic yummy frosting.
