DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F Generously butter 12-cup Bundt pan; dust pan with flour. This is important because all that coconut can get sticky even in a non stick pan. I use Baker's Secret & then flour after getting some sticking. If it sticks it still tastes great & isn't really noticable if served in slices w/ice cream.
  • Stir 3 cups cake flour and salt in medium bowl to blend.
  • Beat butter in large bowl until fluffy. Gradually add 2 1/2 cups sugar, beating until well blended. This is important and I set a timer for 2 minutes - longer than you think! Beat in eggs 1 at a time, then both extracts. Beat in flour mixture in 4 additions alternately with 1 cup coconut milk in 3 additions. Fold in toasted flaked and thawed grated coconut. Transfer batter to prepared pan; rap smartly on counter to force out air bubbles and even batter (and scare the cat and dogs in the kitchen).
  • Bake cake until top is golden brown and tester inserted near center comes out clean, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Be sure to have a drip catcher in the oven beneath the bundt pan to catch overflow if needed.
  • Cool cake in pan 5- 10 minutes but trim any overhang while hot or it will harden and hold the cake in as it cools. (yum, trimmings) Turn cake out onto rack; cool completely. Try not to pick off bits -- .
