  • 280 g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • A pinch salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 250 ml coconut milk
  • 350 ml shaved coconut - dessicated coconut
  • 240 g soft butter
  • 1 26 cm spring form tin buttered floured and lined with parchment paper
  • 1 mixer with the whisk attachment
  • 1 rubber spatula
  • 1 wooden skewer

Step 2: Preheat the oven

Firstly, turn on the oven to 170 degrees centigrade.

Step 3: Whip the butter, vanilla and sugar

Introduce the white sugar, the brown sugar, vanilla essence and the butter into the mixer bowl. Lower the whisk attachment down into the bowl and blend on high for a few minutes to whip the butter.

Step 4: Add the eggs

When the batter is thoroughly whipped , slow down the speed and start adding in the eggs. Add the first egg and allow to mix in. Then add the second egg. Allow to blend in and add the final egg and mix in thoroughly.

Step 5: Add the remaining ingredients

Continue by adding the baking powder, salt, then add half of the flour, little by little, add in some of the coconut milk little by little, allowing each amount to mix in before adding the next batch. Then add a little more flour, a little more coconut milk, add the remaining flour and when thoroughly combined shake in the coconut and give it a quick blend. Switch off the machine, twist off the whip attachment, shaking off any batter and remove the bowl. Finally, give it a quick mix by hand using your rubber spatula.

Step 6: Transfer to the baking tin

Spoon the batter into the buttered spring form baking tin and using your spatula spread it evenly. It is now ready to bake!

Step 7: Bake

Place the baking tin in the centre of the oven preheated to 170 degrees centigrade and bake for roughly 45 minutes. Check to see if it's done by piercing it in the centre with a skewer. If it comes out dry it is done!

Step 8: Present and serve

If you want you can sprinkle with icing sugar before slicing it and serve with whipped cream or strawberries!
