Ingredients

  • coconut oil 100ml
  • golden caster sugar 100g
  • coconut yogurt 150g
  • eggs 3
  • condensed milk 175ml
  • self-raising flour 300g
  • desiccated coconut 75g
  • icing sugar 150g
  • coconut cream about 4 tbsp 
  • toasted coconut curls or candied coconut to decorate

Method

  • Step 1

    Oil a long thin loaf tin (about 30cm x 10cm) and line it with baking paper, leaving enough overhang to help you lift the cake out when it is cooked. Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. 

  • Step 2

    Beat the coconut oil with the sugar, whisk the yogurt and eggs with the condensed milk, and beat this into the sugar mixture. Fold in the flour and desiccated coconut and spoon the mixture into the tin. Bake for 1-11/4 hours, or until a skewer comes out clean. 

  • Step 3

    Cool for 15 minutes, then lift the cake out of the tin and cool completely. Mix the icing sugar with enough coconut cream to make a thick, spoonable icing and drizzle this over the cake, sprinkle with coconut.
