I plan to make a coconut cake and cover it with white chocolate ganache and fondant. Does anyone have a good recipe or idea of what kind of filling would go well with these flavors (preferably something that does not need to be refrigerated). Thanks!
Pineapple filling is great with coconut cakes. I also make coconut filling , using coconut milk,or coconut water(either from the fresh coconut or from the can. If you do this , you just add some sugar , cook it for about 5 min. , stirring constantly and then add fresh coconut or frozen to it. Let it set up a litte and add to layers. (this is how my mama made it ) If you make the pineapple( use a 20oz. can of crushed pineapple, add about 1/2-3/4 cups sugar,2 tablespoons of flour or cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of real lemon juice(roll the lemon and squeeze ) not the bottle. ha!! stir all this together and cook on med heat for about 5 minutes. Don,t over cook it. take it off the stove , let it set up. You have a wonderful pineapple filling.(again, this is how my mama did it.hth
Thanks! Both recipes sound great Does either require the cake to be refrigerated after the fillings are applied? How long have you let a cake sit out with either of the fillings?
