Walter's Famous Coconut Cream Cake
Baker's Coconut Kitchen Calendar; late 1920s From *Cakes Men Like* by Benjamin Darling
Icing: Cook sugar and water to the thread stage, then beat the egg whites until very light. Pour sugar over the egg whites slowly and beat until creamy. Add vanilla if desired. Spread over the cake. Sprinkle shredded coconut thickly between the layers and over the top and sides.
Cream the butter and sugar well, and add the beaten eggs. Next add the milk gradually. Sift the flour before measuring, then sift again with the baking powder. Grease and flour two 9" layer cake pans and line with kitchen parchment. Pour the batter into the pans and bake about 15 minutes in a 350 F. oven.
This recipe is missing the ingredients and amounts for the icing so use your best guess. Also, not sure if the vanilla is missing in the cake directions or if that is for with the icing. Please let me know if you have the rest of this recipe!
