COCONUT CAKE




In the weekend, I set aside some personal time and baked this Coconut Cake. It is egg free recipe and truly fabulous. It is moist and smells so good loaded with shredded coconut.

In case  you  have self rising flour in hand, you can use it but omit the baking soda and baking powder also you can add an egg, lightly beaten  if you're not a fan of banana.

My sons took a bite and declared this Coconut Cake as  our delightful  new favorite.

There is no reason why you're not baking this cake. It is super easy, all you need was to throw the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, mix well then  fold  in mashed banana, milk and vanilla extract. Stir to combine and  pour into prepared pan and it is ready to be baked in a preheated  oven for 20-25 minutes.

COCONUT CAKE
Makes  :     12 servings

1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
125 g  melted  butter
1 cup  shredded coconut
1/2 cup milk
1 medium banana mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder



METHOD

Place flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, coconut and melted butter in a mixing bowl.

Stir to combine. Preheat oven  @ 180 C and grease a 8 in pan,

Stir in mashed banana, milk and vanilla extract.

Spread mixture into greased 8 in pan.

Bake @ 180 C for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Cut into slices to serve. Enjoy!

I can see why your sons loved it - It looks delicious. I am curious about the orange color. I didn't see an ingredient that would make it orange. Am I missing something?

Jyotsna Sarkar said...

Well, thanks for this recipie, i just tried making the cake using SAME ingredients in SAME mentioned quantities and used a 9in round cake pan and baked in my convection oven.. but the cake dint rise much.. Can you help me why ? :( It tasted yummy though ;) ... Please help, i am new to baking and I have a doubt that i used a big size pan.. is it so?

Treat and Trick said...

Hi Jyotsna, have you check the expiry date of your baking powder and baking soda also the pan you used. It should be filled half of the pan. Actually this cake wont't rise much since no egg and lesser amount of baking powder/soda are used. Thanks for trying my recipe...
