Recipe 12: Eggless White Chocolate and Coconut Cake

I normally prepare sweets at home during puja or festival. Today is Maha Shivratri and suddenly it occurred to me to bake a vegan cake instead. Almost all the ingredients that would go in making a sweet also goes in this cake. It is a mindset which doesn't really think that a cake can be a Prasad.

But we can.

Below is a simple recipe of coconut cake.

The combination of coconut and white chocolate is unique and they go excellent together.


  1. 1 cup flour
  2. 1 cup semolina
  3. 1 cup dry shredded coconut (click to buy Dried Coconut Flakes)
  4. 1 cup milk
  5. 1 cup castor sugar
  6. 3/4 cup vegetable oil or 1 cup softened unsalted butter
  7. 1/2 cup chopped white chocolate (click to buy White Chocolate Slab)
  8. 1 tbsp. baking powder
  9. 2 tsp. vanilla essence (click to buy Vanilla Madagascar)
  10. 1 tsp. salt


Sieve together flour, baking powder and salt.
Keep aside.
In a large mixing bowl whisk oil/butter, sugar, milk and vanilla essence.
Add semolina and coconut to the wet ingredients.
Add the dry flour mixture and chocolate chunks.
Transfer the batter to a greased and floured round cake tin and sprinkle few white chocolates on top.
Bake for 1 hour in a 180 degree oven or till the toothpick inserted comes out clean.
