Coconut Cake

Coconut cake has always been a favourite in my house and something I have made since I was a kid, it's always the one I remember making in the school holidays. This is a really soft cake, packed with coconutty flavour and has been adapted from my childhood recipe to make it gluten free, it doesn't need a topping but if you wish you can top with buttercream.

Method

1. Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix well with an electric whisk for a few minutes until all ingredients are well combined and the mix is creamy.

2. Grease a baking tin (I used an 8 inch round tin) and pour in the mix.

3. Bake in an oven preheated to gas mark 2-3 for an hour, if the top hasn't browned but the mixture is cooked through (check this by pressing a skewer into the middle, if no mixture comes out on the skewer it is done) turn the oven up to 5 for 5-10 mins.
