Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place egg whiles in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in another large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Combine the coconut milk, milk and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with the milk mixture.

Poke holes in cake with a skewer, about 1/2-in. apart. Combine syrup ingredients; slowly pour over cake, allowing mixture to absorb into cake. Let stand for 30 minutes. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
