1 tsp baking soda

CAKE ICING

8 oz cream cheese
1 1/2 c whipping cream
chopped nuts for direction
Directions
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. 1. Cream butter with sugar and add vanilla. 2. Next add 5 separated egg yolks and 1/2 cup of olive oil – mix and beat until fluffy. 3. In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients: Sifted flour, baking powder and the baking soda. [it doesnt call for baking powder but I like my cakes to stand high] 4. Add the dry ingredients to the mixture a little at a time alternating with the buttermilk (about 1/4 cup at a time).
2. 5. Next mix in walnuts and coconut. 6. In another bowl beat the egg whites until you have stiff peaks. 7. With a spatula gently fold in your egg whites into the batter by making the figure 8 pattern. 8. Spoon the batter into your greased bundt pan making it as even as you can. 9. Bake for about 60 minutes until the cake seems firm
3. 10. Let it cool for 20 minutes. For the Icing: 1. With a hand blender cream the cream cheese with the 1 1/2 cups of whipping cream. Pour generous amount on cake. Sprinkle Coconuts and top off with chopped walnuts. Again drizzle [I like that word] more icing on top on nuts and cocunuts. Refrigerate the cake until you are going to slice and serve!
