Yield: 8 servings

Nonstick flour spray
2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
5 large eggs, separated
1 teaspoon coconut extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup coconut milk
1 cup buttermilk

Luscious Lime Frosting, recipe follows, for serving
Coconut flakes, for garnish
Fresh raspberries, for garnish, optional
Lime slices, for garnish, optional
Luscious Lime Frosting:
1 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon lime zest
5 cup confectioners' sugar
One 8-ounce container frozen whipped topping, thawed

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray three 9-inch cake pans with nonstick flour spray.
In a large bowl, beat the sugar and butter at medium speed with a mixer until fluffy. Add the egg yolks, coconut extract and vanilla extract, beating until combined. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a small bowl, combine the coconut milk and buttermilk. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture alternately with the coconut milk mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture, beating just until combined after each addition.
In a medium bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into the batter. Spoon the batter into the prepared cake pans and bake for 18 minutes. Let cool.
Spread the Luscious Lime Frosting between the layers and on the top and sides of the cake. Press coconut flakes around the cake. Garnish with fresh raspberries and lime slices, if desired. Chill until ready to serve.
