  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Beat egg whites in medium bowl with mixer on high speed until soft peaks form, adding cream of tartar after 20 sec. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar, beating until stiff peaks form.
  • Beat egg yolks in large bowl with mixer on high speed until blended. Gradually beat in remaining sugar until thickened and lemon colored. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to egg yolk mixture alternately with 2% milk, beating well after each addition. Blend in vanilla. Gently stir in egg whites.
  • Pour into 2 (9-inch) parchment-lined round pans sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake 25 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool cakes completely in pans. (Do not remove cakes from pans.) Pierce cakes with large fork at 1/4-inch intervals.
  • Mix coconut milk, condensed milk and sour cream until blended. Pour 1/2 cup milk mixture into medium bowl. Add COOL WHIP; whisk just until blended. Set aside. Pour remaining coconut milk mixture slowly over cakes, using about 1-1/4 cups mixture for each cake layer.
  • Toss fruit with 1 cup of the COOL WHIP mixture. Place 1 cake layer on rimmed serving plate; top with fruit mixture. Sprinkle with half the coconut; cover with second cake layer. Spread remaining COOL WHIP mixture over cake; sprinkle with remaining coconut. Refrigerate 1 hour.

Special Equipment Needed

Size Wise

Dessert can be a part of a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions.


For best results, assemble the dessert on a rimmed serving plate as directed in recipe since some of the milk mixture might run out of the cake as it stands.

How 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.

How to Easily Pour the Milk Mixture Over the Cake Layers

To add milk mixture to the cake layers with less mess, pour the milk mixture into a clean plastic bottle with narrow squirt tip. Insert the tip of the bottle into the holes in the cake before gently squeezing the milk mixture into the holes.
