Coconut Cake

Oh yummy! Looking for something to go with custard for our Soup & Pudding Sunday, and having some coconut in the cupboard this was the result. Lovely and light too. Will also enjoy a wee slice with afternoon tea.

Makes 1 loaf

50g dessicated coconut

150ml milk

110g butter

110g caster sugar

2 eggs

250g self raising flour

1 pinch salt

For the icing:-

5 tbsp icing sugar

1 tbsp milk

1 tbsp dessicated coconut

  1. Pre heat oven to 150 deg.
  2. Cream together the sugar and butter until light & fluffy
  3. Beat eggs in, 1 at a time.
  4. Add flour, salt, milk and coconut and mix gently until combined
  5. Spoon mixture into bake tin and bake for about 1 hour until a knife comes or clean
  6. Once cool, mix icing sugar, coconut and milk together and spread over top of cake.
  7. Alternatively, you can disregard the icing and serve with custard which is yummy too.
