II finally have my mother out of hospital and staying with me for a few days. She is doing well. Today was a relaxing day for a hot Saturday. I baked two cakes our regular Banana Bread and this delicious coconut cake. I have been wanting to make this for a while now after having ordering one while I was out a few months ago at my favourite cafe.
125 grams unsalted butter
1 cup caster sugar
2 lightly beaten eggs
1 cup sifted Self Raising flour
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup milk
Pre heat oven to 180 degrees.
Lightly grease and line a 1-x20cm loaf pan.
Place butter and caster sugar in a large bowl and beat with electric beater until light and creamy.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating between each addition until well combined.
Fold four and coconut into mixture, alternating with milk, until just combined.
Spoon the mixture into the lined pan.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden.
