  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut

  • 1 cup icing sugar (confectioners sugar)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk

Instructions

Coconut Cake:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare a Bundt pan by buttering the pan and lightly dusting with flour. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time.
  5. Then add vanilla, and mix well.
  6. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and coconut flakes.
  7. To the butter mix, add 1/3 of the flour mix, then 1/2 of the coconut milk. Repeat until all combined.
  8. Pour into the prepared Bundt pan.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Coconut Glaze:

  1. While the cake is baking, mix together the glaze ingredients until smooth. Set aside.

Putting it all together:

  1. Once the cake has baked, let it cool for about 10 minutes in the pan, then turn the cake out onto a plate, and drizzle on the coconut glaze, and sprinkle with sweetened shredded coconut. If you like, you can even toast the coconut then sprinkle it on.
