A traditional yellow cake laced with coconut, then sprinkled with coconut for a fanciful party cake. It's fun, festive and fluffy. Once you've tried cake made with yogurt, there is no alternative, it adds incredible moistness.

Preparation:

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour 2- 9 inch cake pans. In large bowl sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl beat butter with electric mixer or hand mixer for 1-2 minutes until soft. Gradually add 1 1/2 cups of sugar. Beat until light and fluffy. Separate eggs and add one egg yolk one at a time to wet ingredients mixing constantly (reserve egg whites in a separate bowl). Add vanilla extract and coconut. With mixer on low, alternate adding the dry ingredients and yogurt to batter.

Step 2

Beat the egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar to egg whites and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Gradually add remaining 1/4 cup of sugar. With a spatula fold egg whites into batter.

Step 3

Divide batter evenly between cake pans. Bake for 35- 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool before frosting. Frost with your favorite butter cream frosting and garnish with 2 cups of unsweetened coconut.
