Cupboard Cake

    40 minutes

    This is a cake that you can make with just ingredients from your cupboard (ok, and milk from the fridge). It is super easy and a great standby option when people drop by.

    I didn't have cocoa powder so used same amount of dessicated coconut and threw in some choc chips for fun - needed more than 30mins cooking - check it carefully. It turned out really yummy though - quite pudding-ish rather than traditional cake texture. I really liked it and so did my husband. A good one for when you start getting out the ingredients and then realise you have no eggs! (oops, now I have to find one for when I have no milk )  -  16 Aug 2011
