Ambrosia cake

Ambrosia is the food of the gods, as is this cake! (AMBROSIA CAKE is a traditional cake in the southern United States - Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi…) Mandarins-pineapple-coconut-vanilla are truly a "divine" combination of flavors!

Preparation steps

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  • Beat 15 egg whites in the snow. In another bowl, mix the sugar well with the egg yolks and add the oil and vanilla. First mix all the dry ingredients (except coconut) well in the third bowl, then add the second mixture with the egg yolks. Stir the egg whites well but slowly. Put the mixture in three round baking trays, which you previously coated with butter and flour. Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Heat the milk, add the starch and cook until it thickens. In a small bowl, mix the egg yolks and sugar, and add to the pudding. Remove from heat immediately. Add butter at room temperature and vanilla and mix well.
  • Divide the cream in half. Put the juice in which the mandarins were (one cup) in one and mix well. Add finely chopped tangerines and in the other half of the cream add the juice in which there was pineapple (one cup) and finely chopped pineapple.
  • Cream cheese, butter, sugar and juice mix well.
  • When the peel has cooled, coat the first peel with mandarin juice, then with mandarin cream and sprinkle with half of the coconut. Cover with another peel, coat with pineapple juice and then with pineapple cream. Sprinkle the other half of the coconut. Fold in the third crust and coat the whole cake with cream cheese. Press fried coconut around the cake (side only), and decorate with pineapple and tangerines on top.
  • ENJOY AS GODS !!!!
