Coconut Cake

My friend Simon (different Simon!) makes the most delicious coconut cake which he brings to cub camp for us have with our tea, I’ve finally managed to get the recipe from him which he got out of a ‘really old’ recipe book. It’s one of those wonderful so-simple-it-works-every-time ones and produces this light, moist, fluffy cake with minimum effort.
