Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, plus more for pan
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for pan
  • 1 1/2 cups packed sweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large whole eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • Petal dust, in pink

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour an 8-inch (6-cup) Bundt pan. In a food processor, pulse coconut, flour, baking powder, and salt until combined.

  2. In a mixing bowl, beat butter until creamy. Gradually add granulated sugar until mixture is light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add eggs, egg whites, and vanilla; continue beating until incorporated. Add the flour mixture in three alternating batches with the coconut milk, beating well after each addition.

  3. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until a cake tester inserted into middle of cake ring comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool in pan, 30 minutes.

  4. Trim top of cake with a serrated knife to make a flat base. Run a small knife around edge to loosen; invert cake onto rack to cool completely.

  5. In a bowl, whisk confectioners' sugar and milk until smooth. In a separate bowl, toss remaining cup coconut with petal dust, adding just enough to reach the desired shade. Drizzle icing over top of cake; sprinkle with pink coconut.
