Grinch Cake

Ingredients to make Grinch Cake

  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup nonsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup lowfat plain yogurt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 extra large eggs
  • 1 tsp grated lemon zest
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup Vegetable oil

How to make Grinch Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, coconut.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together yogurt, sugar, eggs, lemon zest and vanilla. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Evenly blend. Slowly whisk in vegetable oil, until batter is thoroughly mixed and no flour can be seen.
  3. It is at this time you add in the food coloring. (For two cakes: red for first, green for second) Pour the batter in prepared pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. Take out of oven. Leave in pan for ten minutes. Then flip loaf over, carefully onto wire rack to cook.
  5. For red cake, slice into 1/2 inch pieces.
  6. Use small cookie heart cutter to cut out a hundred hearts (kidding, more like twenty). Stand them upright on bottom right of a clean, greased loaf pan stacked one beside another, leaving room on both ends for green batter to cover.
  7. For green cake, repeat with same ingredients and tint batter green. Pour over the hearts assembled in loaf pan. Red should not show through.
  8. Bake this for 50-60 minutes until tester inserted comes out clean. Once out of oven, leave in pan for ten minutes. Flip carefully onto wire rack.
  9. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Decorate with fondant heart, buttercream. Slice and be surprised.

My Tip:

I use Wilton's No Taste Red to color the red loaf which is baked first. For the green I used leaf green.
