Coconut Cake

I tried a few newbies for my pot luck party.  Sweet Potato Kheer - this was shared by cousin brother, Coconut Cake shared by Anita (which also shared her Moroccan Spiced Chicken), Chiffon Pandan Cake and Chinese Style Prawn Fried Rice.

Now lets look at Coconut Cake which Anita shared on her FB.  Not only it is easy to prepare, it was also fantastic especially when it was still warm and definitely a big wow from my guests.

Lets look at the recipe

Coconut Cake

250g butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2.5 cups flour
0.5 cups desiccated coconut
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup coconut cream

1.  Preheat oven to 160C
2. Cream butter and sugar till fluffy.
3. Mix in eggs one at a time.
4. Sift flour & baking powder into a separate bowl. Stir in coconut.
5. Alternate folding in flour mixture and coconut cream (I warm the coconut milk with pandan leaves just as suggested by Anita) into cake batter until incorporated.
6. Pour into tin and bake for 1-1.5 hr.

Sliced Coconut Cake
Note from Anita : For a Malaysian twist, warm coconut milk with a 2-3 bruised pandan (screwpine) leaves, and leave to infuse for 5-10 min before adding to batter
