Italian Cake's


We can’t say we’re totally sure where the name of this dish came from, but we’re pretty sure this Catch a Husband cake could catch just about anyone – it’s just so tasty!

Now, this isn’t your typical light and fluffy cake, this is more of a thick and creamy custard of sorts, that you can cut into squares – perfect for feeding a crowd.

We love how coconutty this cake is and the fact that we can achieve a silky smooth custard without having to wrangle with tempering eggs at just the right temperature (read: dealing with a scrambled mess that we have to throw out and then start over).
Mix your cake ingredients together and you’re good to go!

How to make it? 


For the Cake:

1 can condensed milk

1 can evaporated milk

1 cup coconut milk

500 grams flour (2½ cups)

1/2 cup sugar

3 large whole eggs

3 tablespoons margarine

For the Icing:

1 cup coconut milk

2 tablespoons sugar

1 cup shredded coconut


For the Cake:

Blend all ingredients for cake in a blender.

Place in a greased and floured Bundt pan.

Bake at 350ºF until golden brown, 30 to 60 minutes depending on the oven.

Insert a toothpick to check doneness.

If it comes out clean, remove cake from oven.

For the Icing:

Put the coconut milk, sugar and grated coconut in a saucepan, stirring occasionally.

Bring to a boil, let it cool a bit, then pour over hot cake.

The icing mixture will look like condensed milk when done.
