Coconut Cake


Snow-white coconut cake decorated with sweetened coconut flakes..this is a delicious and flavorful cake with the rich and creamy taste of coconut which I have added both in the cake as well as frosting.The recipe inspiration is from here.I made a smaller cake with two layers and used a different filling and frosting. I have used coconut milk in this recipe which you can also substitute with sour cream. It is perfect for any occasion and is a sure winner.



For the cake
Self raising flour- 2 1/2 cup
Egg-3
Coconut cream/thick milk-1 cup
Butter-1 stick
Sugar- 1 cup
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp
Rum essence- 1/2 tsp (optional)

Frosting
Powdered sugar- 2 cups
Butter - 3 tsps
Coconut milk-3 tbs
Vanilla essence- 1/2 tsp
( combine all this and beat with a mixer till fluffy)

Dry coconut- 1/3 cup
Sweetened coconut- 1/2 cup( mix both together)




Shift flour and keep aside.Preheat oven to 350 degree F.Prepare cake tin by buttering and lining with parchment paper.
Using a hand mixer beat room temperature butter, egg and sugar till soft and fluffy.Add vanilla essence. With a spatula fold in the flour and coconut milk little by little and one at a time. Pour into prepared cake tin. Even it using the spatula and bake for 30 minutes or till the tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool the cake completely. Using a long knife cut the cake through the center. The edge of the knife should be visible and then go round and round the cake.Spread a layer of frosting and sprinkle coconut flakes and place the second layer.Frost the outer of the cake and sprinkle and decorate the cake as desired.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy
