Recipe 115: Coconut Cake

Coconut is an absolute delicious ingredient to cook with. Sweet and nutty, with coconut you can prepare savory and sweet dishes.

Today I made one of my favorite recipes out of coconut - Coconut Cake.
It is moist, packed with coco-nutty flavor, and goes super with a glass of milk or cup of tea.
I have added a good amount of coconut milk powder. But if you can get your hands on coconut milk (fresh or canned) (Get Coconut Milk) then add 1.5 cups of it and skip milk+coconut milk powder completely. If you could add a few drops of coconut essence (Get Coconut Essence), then that would be best. It will not only complement the vanilla essence but also make the coconut flavor burst into the cake!

So do try!


  1. 2 + 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 + 1/2 cups milk
  3. 1 + 1/2 cups sugar
  4. 1 cup desiccated coconut 
  5. 3/4 cup vegetable oil or butter
  6. 1/4 cup coconut milk powder (Get Coconut Milk Powder)
  7. 2 + 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  8. 1 tsp. vanilla essence (Get Madagascar Vanilla)
  9. 1/4 tsp. salt
  10. 2 eggs


Grease and flour cake tins.
Preheat the oven at 150 degrees celcius.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, oil, desiccated coconut, vanilla essence, coconut milk powder, eggs and milk.
Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt.
Combine the dry ingredients with the wet and mix till a smooth cake batter forms.
Pour the batter in the cake tins.
Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 45 minutes or till the cake domes and a toothpick inserted comes out dry.
Cool the cake inside the tin for half an hour and then unmould.
Slice and serve.
