Incredible Easter Cake that Will Melt In Your Mouth!

So Easter is on the horizon and we can’t believe it!  With dawning of Spring comes a lot of gatherings…Mother’s Day, Easter lunch, Bridal and of  course baby showers so…here’s an incredible recipe brought to you by our friends from CountryLiving!  Allow me to humbly present… our Speckled Malted Coconut Cake.

Baking spray, for pan
3 c.  cake flour, spooned and leveled
1 1/ 2 tsp.  baking powder
1/4  c. malted milk powder
1  tsp. Kosher salt
1  c. canola oil
1  c. half-and-half, at room temperature
1  c. sugar
1  tsp. pure vanilla extract
1  tsp. pure coconut extract
large egg plus 2 large egg whites, at room temperature
1/8 tsp.  brown gel food coloring


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease three 8-inch cake pans and line bottoms with parchment paper rounds. Whisk together flour, baking powder, malt powder, and salt in a bowl.
  2. Whisk together oil, half-and-half, sugar, vanilla, coconut extract, and whole egg in a separate bowl until smooth. Fold in flour mixture just until incorporated. Beat egg whites with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form, 1 to 2 minutes. Fold egg whites into batter just until combined.
  3. Divide batter among prepared pans. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 18 to 22 minutes. Cool in pans on a wire rack for 15 minutes, then invert onto racks to cool completely.
  4. Place one layer on a cake plate and frost top with 1 cup Coconut Buttercream. Repeat two more times. Frost sides with remaining Coconut Buttercream.
  5.  Stir together food coloring and 2 drops water in a bowl. Dip the tip of a wide, stiff paintbrush into the mixture. Holding the brush 6 to 8 inches from the cake, gently fling the mixture onto iced cake. Repeat for desired effect. Spread Phyllo Nest around the base of the cake, and nestle robin’s egg candies in nest.
