Baking cake has never been as easy as this... need not 'cream' the butter with sugar etc...
One of my favourites cook cum chef cum author... learnt a lot of cooking tips from Ms Janelle....this one is from her new cook book....
- 2 1/3 cups dessicated coconut
- 1 1/3 cups caster sugar
- 2 1/2 cups self raising flour - sifted
- 2 2/3 cups of coconut milk
- 2 eggs at room temperature - lightly beaten
Combine dessicated coconut, flour and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add coconut milk and eggs. Mix well. Pour in a greased cake pan. Bake at 170C (no fan) for 1 hour or until skewer comes out clean. Stand for 10 minutes in the pan before turning onto a wire rack.
- 1 1/2 cups icing sugar
- 2 fresh passionfruit - halved
Sift icing sugar into a microwave safe bowl. Add 2 tablespoon of passionfruit pulp. Stir to form a very thick paste. Microwave uncovered for 30-40sec on high until warm and runny.
Pour warm glaze over and leave it to set.

Note: could do with less sugar in the cake and icing....
