Coconut Daffodil Cake

 
Coconut Layer Cake Coconut Cake Coconut Cake
 

The exotic tropical richness of fresh coconut gives the coconut daffodil cake recipe a delicious flavor that makes it a favorite cake with everyone. This towering cake is made in two parts – first two layers are a moist yellow cake made from three egg yolks; then the second two layers are a white cake, made from the remaining three egg whites. The coconut cake is assembled with alternating layers of white and yellow cake sandwiched together with white coconut icing. Two simple cake flavors, yellow and white, become a delectable treat when combined with the flavor of coconut.
