Like a breeze that caresses you atop a hill, the mellow flavour of coconut revitalises your palate when you bite into this unique Coconut Cake.

The soothing touch of coconut is unmistakable as both coconut milk and desiccated coconut are used. This is a soft and succulent sponge cake with a deep-seated flavour and mild crunch, which makes it a wonderful accompaniment to tea.

While you may serve it a while after baking, it tastes especially great when slightly warm.

   Hi, I would request you to try the recipe with powdered sugar. We have not tried it with coconut sugar.

   Hi Shubha, We have not tried using it. Surely the texture (fluffiness) and flavour will differ.
