How to Make My Old Fashioned Coconut Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 11 c. Crisco
    5 eggs
    3 c. cake flour
    2 1/2 c. sugar

    Cream together Crisco and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time. Add baking powder to cake flour, then add to Crisco and sugar mixture. Mix well. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring. Bake in three 9-inch cake pans at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Cool.

    PINEAPPLE FILLING:

    1 can crushed pineapple
    1 tsp. butter
    Sweeten to taste with brown sugar

    1 tsp. butter, softened
