Merry Christmas and recipe for yummie coconut cake.
Yesterday, I talked about my best Swedish chocolate cake. Today, I'm pulling out another Yule recipe. Coconut cake. It's sooo good, and really easy to make.
Everything I said yesterday about measurements, the baking pan, and parchment paper still stands.
2 dl sugar
3 dl flour (I use self rising flour)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1.5 dl cold water
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 dl sugar
1.5 dl coconut flakes
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (less if you're using the super concentrated stuff)
Stir the ingredients together, and spread over the cake while it's still warm. If it cools too much, it's really difficult to put the frosting on. The cake freezes well. =)
American coconut flakes are a bit different from the Swedish ones, so your cake will look a little different from the image. That's okay - both taste about the same. =)
