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

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
