What You Need

5
 eggs, separated
1
cup  sugar, divided
1
cup  flour
1-1/2
tsp.  CALUMET Baking Powder
1/3
cup  2% milk
1/2
tsp.  vanilla
1/2
tsp.  cream of tartar
1
can  (14 oz.) lite coconut milk
1
can  (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1/4
cup  BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
2
cups  thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
1
cup  small fresh pineapple cubes
1/2
cup  fresh blueberries
1/3
cup  BAKER'S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut, toasted

Make It

HEAT oven to 350°F.

BEAT egg yolks in large bowl with mixer on high speed until well blended. Gradually add 3/4 cup sugar, beating until thick and lemon colored. Meanwhile, mix flour and baking powder; gradually add to egg yolk mixture alternately with 2% milk, beating after each addition until blended. Blend in vanilla; set aside.

BEAT egg whites in separate large bowl with mixer on high speed until soft peaks form, adding cream of tartar after 20 sec. Gradually add remaining sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Stir into egg yolk mixture with whisk. Pour evenly into 2 (9-inch) parchment paper-lined round pans sprayed with cooking spray.

BAKE 25 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool cakes completely in pans. Pierce cakes with large fork at 1/4-inch intervals. Mix coconut milk, condensed milk and sour cream until blended. Whisk 1/2 cup coconut milk mixture and COOL WHIP in medium bowl; cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Pour remaining coconut milk mixture slowly over cakes, using about 1-1/4 cups mixture for each cake layer.

COMBINE fruit with 1 cup COOL WHIP mixture. Place 1 cake layer on cake stand; top with fruit mixture. Sprinkle with half the coconut; top with second cake layer. Spread remaining COOL WHIP mixture over cake; sprinkle with remaining coconut. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

How to Assemble Cake
Assemble cake on cake stand or platter that has a rim, as some of the cake's milk mixture will run out of the cake as it stands.
Shortcut
To add milk mixture to cake with less mess, pour milk mixture into clean plastic bottle with narrow squirt tip. Insert tip of bottle into hole in cake before gently squeezing milk mixture into hole. Continue across cakes.
To Achieve Maximum Volume When Beating Eggs
It is best to separate eggs when cold, then bring to room temperature before using them to prepare the cake.
