One Step Cake
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup white sugar
10 tsp cold butter cut into small pieces
2 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 egg whites
2 Tbsp brown sugar (you can substitute with white sugar but it wont have quite the same depth of flavor)
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
Preheat the oven to 350.
In a food processor mix together the flour, baking powder and sugar by processing a few times. Add the cold butter on top and process 20 times. The consistency should be like breadcrumbs. Add the egg yolks and vanilla and process a few more times until incorporated. Pour into a springform pan and press down until smooth and firm.
In a bowl mix the egg whites on low until frothy. Then add the brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Continue to whip on a high speed until the eggs hold a stiff peak. Carefully use a spatula to transfer the egg mixture to the top of the uncooked flour mixture in the springform pan. Smooth out the "frosting" and then cover with the shredded coconut.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until the top is golden brown. Let cool 10 minutes and then release the springform. Serves 6-8.
