For the dough:
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 165 grams unsalted butter
- 120 ml buttermilk
- 250 grams sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 240 grams flour

- 750 grams mascarpone
- 400 ml coconut milk
- 80 grams chopped coconut
- 1 handful of strawberries, sliced
- 340 grams of sugar
- 160 grams chopped coconut (to decorate)
Firstly, preheat the oven on 180 degrees. In a bowl aside, put the baking powder, the flour, salt and nutmeg. However, in another bowl mix the sugar and the butter. Be sure to mix the mixture well. Then, add the vanilla extract and the eggs. Be sure to mix the mixture well again. After this process, you should continue to add the other ingredients. In the end, split the mixture in 3 parts and place them in separate baking pans. Bake them for about 30 minutes until they get some golden color. After that, put them in the fridge.
Now, you need to prepare the filling. In order to do that, you need to put the coconut milk in a pot and add the chopped coconut in it. Cook it for about 30 minutes with occasional stirring. Now, add the white chocolate and wait until it melts. When the mixture is done, put it in some other bowl and place it in the fridge. Mix the sugar and the mascarpone aside and then add them to the mixture with coconut and chocolate.
When you finish this process you almost came to an end. Now put one dough on a plate and put the filling on in. Repeat this procedure with the other pieces. In the end, put the last filling on the whole cake. Furthermore you can decorate it with some strawberries and chopped coconut. Enjoy!
