Five Minute Coconut Cake

Approx 8 slices
Preparation: 5 mins
Cooking: 40 mins

When time is of the essence and kitchen ingredients are sparse, this no-fuss creation delivers its promise of simplicity and time efficiency, with a rough-textured crumbly mix brought to life by a touch of the exotic. A perfect accompaniment to elevenses, high tea and the late-night hot cocoa mug, or simply to soothe a sweet-tooth craving!

  • 120 g of desiccated coconut
  • 6 heaped tablespoons of self-raising flour
  • 1 whole egg
  • Pint of semi-skimmed milk
  • 3 heaped tablespoons of Demerara sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of nut-flavoured oil (walnut, hazelnut)
Pre-heat the oven (180°C). Combine all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Stir together with a spoon until you obtain a smooth mixture.

Oil a cake mould, then add the mixture. Place in the oven for 40 mins. Finally leave to cool for at least 5 mins before succumbing to temptation!
