      RECIPE TITLE "Coconut Chiffon Cake with Coconut-Cranberry Sorbet Recipe"
    Source: Cooking.com

    yields Makes 10 servings time--- difficultymoderate

    A delicate light-textured cake. To measure the flour accurately, sift some flour into a bowl. Spoon the sifted flour into a 1 cup measure so cup is overflowing. Stand the edge of a ruler on top of
    cup and sweep away the extra flour; do this twice.

    Cooking.com Tip: Sifting the flour is an important step when making a cake. The Oxo flour sifter features an innovative handle design that you shake rather than squeeze, keeping your hand from cramping. This sifter also comes with a lid for the top and bottom to keep your cupboards free of flour.

    Coconut-Cranberry Sorbet

      RECIPE INGREDIENTS

    1 cup flaked sweetened coconut (about 3 ounces)
    2 cups sugar

    2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    3/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    7 large egg yolks

    7 large egg whites
    1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

    Fresh cranberries (optional)
    Fresh mint (optional)

      RECIPE METHOD

    Position rack in bottom third of oven and preheat to 325 degrees F. Blend coconut and 1/4 cup sugar in processor until coconut is finely chopped.

    Whisk flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl to blend. Make well in center of dry ingredients. Add coconut milk, oil, lemon juice and vanilla to well; then yolks. Whisk all ingredients until very smooth. Fold coconut mixture from processor into yolk mixture. Using electric mixer, beat whites and cream of tartar in another large bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in remaining 1 cup sugar; beat until whites are stiff but not dry. Fold large spoonful of whites into yolk mixture to lighten. Fold in remaining whites in 3 additions.

    Transfer batter to 10x4-inch angel food cake pan. Bake cake until golden on top and tester (slender wooden skewer) comes out clean, about 1 hour 5 minutes. Place narrow-neck bottle into center tube of cake pan. Stand bottle upright so cake hangs upside down. Cool cake completely. Cut around cake pan and center tube to loosen cake. Remove cake from pan; place on platter. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and store at room temperature.)

    Cut cake into wedges; place on plates. Spoon sorbet alongside. Garnish with fresh cranberries and mint, if desired.

As Time Out New York says: "The secret to Magnolia's success is simple: Nobody knows how to bake like this anymore."
    Magnolia's owners Jennifer Appel and Allysa Torey know how, and in The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook they share their most mouth-watering recipes, from sweet breakfast treats like Dried-Cherry Crumb Buns to classic Iced Molasses Cookies, from decadently rich Caramel Pecan Brownies and Raspberry Marzipan Cheesecake to refreshing Lemon Icebox Pie. Their easy-to-follow recipes and invaluable baking hints mean that even the inexperienced baker will be able to frost the perfect layer cake, turn out the flakiest pie crust, and whip up the creamiest cheesecake. Illustrated with eight pages of glorious color photographs, The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook will inspire you to turn on the oven and create sweet memories for your family and friends. More info
