Moist and sweet cake with frosting and shredded coconut. This is my family’s version of the Sylvia cake.
For the cake:
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
In a medium-sized bowl, beat the eggs and sugar together until smooth. Then add the flour, baking powder and water and mix together before pouring it into a 12″x16″ (30×40 cm) greased pan or you can cover the bottom of the pan with baking paper.
Bake for 25 minutes at 350 F. When done take it out of the oven and let it cool in the pan. Make the frosting while it does.
For the frosting:
In a saucepan over medium-low heat, melt butter together with sugar and vanilla. Let it simmer together for around 3 minutes and make sure to stir often. Then add the egg yolk and mix it in briskly then let it simmer for 1 more minute. Take off from heat and beat together for 2 minutes.
The frosting is supposed to be thick, but not so thick that you can’t spread it with a knife over the cake.
Pour frosting over the cake and make sure it covers all corners of the cake before you pour on a lot of shredded coconut. Lots. It’s part of what makes the cake so delicious.
Suggestion: You can make double the frosting and use it as filling between two pieces of cake.
