Wonderfulicious Un-Frosted Coconut Cake


For all those who have tasted Coconut Cake, nothing beats that delicious coconut frosting covered by coconut shavings, yum! Sometimes though, I want the Coconut Cake without all that sugar, so I decided to make a Coconut Loaf Cake without frosting. I used a fresh coconut that my sis had bought and it turned out to be quite delicious. It still hit the spot! Here’s the recipe:

Fresh coconut!



Ingredients:
-          - ¾ cup Sugar
-         -  ½ cup Margarine
-         - 1 Egg
-          - ¼ cup Fresh Coconut shavings
-          - ½ cup home-made Coconut milk (*Recipe below)
-          - 1 cup Self-Rising Flour
-          - ½ teaspoon Baking powder
Directions:
1.       Preheat oven to 350 °F or 177°C. Grease and flour a small loaf pan and set aside. 
Grease & flour your loaf pan


2.       Sift flour and baking powder into a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, cream sugar and margarine for 2 to 3 minutes until light and fluffy. Add the egg and mix until well blended, then add the fresh coconut shavings.

3.       Add the flour and coconut milk alternately to the batter, beginning and ending with the flour, until well blended. Pour batter into the loaf pan.
4.       Bake for 30 to 45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
5.       Remove cake from oven and let stand for 10 minutes on a cooling rack. Remove from pan and allow to cool completely. 

Delicious and so moist ^_^

Enjoy your cake!

*Home-made Coconut Milk:
Ingredients:

-          ¾ cup Milk
Directions:
1.       Pour milk into a pan and the coconut shavings into the milk. Place pan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Remove pan from heat and sieve the milk into a liquid measuring cup. Set the shavings aside.
2.       Let the milk cool completely and then use accordingly.
