OK, I will admit that I unabashedly STOLE this recipe from a Food Network Program (Thank you Doreen Howarth of San Antonio TX) since it was requested by my friend as her Birthday cake. I took alot of liberties with it however, since my friend is a key lime fanatic. This contains all my alterations. For the original recipe from the Ultimate Recipe Showdown visit Food Network's web site:



  • Cake:
  • 1 cup butter, unsalted
  • 1 3/4 cup Granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp coconut extract
  • 4 Large eggs
  • 2 cup A-P Flour
  • 1/2 cup Cake Flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Aluminum free baking powder
  • 1 cup coconut milk


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F line 2 (9-inch) cake pans with parchment paper.
  • Cream the butter and the sugars together until light and fluffy.
  • Add coconut extract; then add eggs 1 at a time, mixing well after each egg is added.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together both of the flours, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
  • Add the coconut milk and flour to creamed mixture alternately in three parts, begin and end with the flour.
  • Pour batter into prepared pans and bake for 25 to 28 minutes.
  • Allow to cool 15 minutes then un-mold onto rack and peel the parchment, and cool completely.
