There will be 13 to 15 servings after 25 minutes of prep and one hour and twenty minutes of cooking.
- One and a half cups softened unsalted butter
- 8 ounces of softened cream cheese
- Two cups of sugar, granulated
- One cup of tightly packed light brown sugar
- One and a half tablespoons of kosher salt
- Five big eggs at room temperature
- One tablespoon of vanilla extract
- Three cups of all-purpose flour
- One-half teaspoon of baking powder
- One cup of coarsely chopped toasted pecans
- One cup of toasted, sweetened flaked coconut
- Sugar for confectioners to garnish
- Beat butter and cream cheese in the bowls of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on medium speed for three to four minutes, or until creamy.
- Turn the mixer up to high and add the salt, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Beat for ten minutes, pausing occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
- One egg at a time, add them, beating thoroughly after each addition. Mix in the vanilla.
- Mix the flour and baking powder together in a medium-sized mixing basin. Beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture gradually while running the mixer on low speed until it is well blended. Add coconut and pecans and beat.
- Grease a 12- to 15-cup Bundt cake pan with flour-infused baking spray. Using a cooking spoon, transfer batter into the pan that has been prepared. Although the batter will reach around 1 inch of the top of the pan, overflow may be avoided by baking at the lower temperature (150°C or 300°F) as instructed.
- Put the pan in the cold oven on the center rack. A wooden pick inserted close to the middle should come out clean after baking at 150°C or 300°F for around one hour and twenty minutes.
- Give the pan ten minutes to cool. Turn the cake over and allow it to cool fully on a cooling rack. If desired, garnish with confectioners’ sugar.
