Serves: 8 

  • 1 cup (125g) plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) skim milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup (220g) white sugar
  • 6 tablespoons softened butter
  • 10 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup (65ml) thickened cream

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees C. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. Grease and flour a 20cm cake pan.
  2. Combine the milk, 1 tablespoon butter and vanilla essence in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat then remove from the heat and set aside. Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl with a hand mixer until smooth.
  3. Slowly pour in the white sugar while beating on high speed. Stir in the flour mixture until a few large lumps of flour remain then pour in the warm milk mixture and continue stirring until smooth. Pour into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean, about 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. Stir 6 tablespoons butter, brown sugar and coconut and cream together in a bowl until evenly mixed. Spread over the cooled cake to serve.
