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.
Step by Step
2oz Desiccated Coconut
1/4 pint milk
4oz butter or marg

Step 1: Soak coconut in milk for 2 hours
Step 2: Cream butter & sugar together until light and fluffy

You may need to cover with grease proof paper to stop the top burning.
