Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
3 cups cake flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
Additional sweetened flaked coconut (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Generously butter 12-cup Bundt pan; dust pan with flour.
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. 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 2 cups flaked coconut. Transfer batter to prepared pan; smooth top.
