Coconut cake with chocolate icing


It has been a while since my last post. I have a bit less time to cook now since I am a mum but today I managed! Another version of coconut and chocolate cake. You can find the previous one I by clicking here.
Serves 8
  • 50 g desiccated coconut
  • 100 g sugar
  • 10cl double cream
  • 150 g flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 50g vanilla sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of rapeseed oil


  • 80g dark chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • 20g butter

Preheat the oven at 180° C.

In a bowl, mix the eggs, sugar and vanilla sugar. Whip well to get a creamy mixture. Then add gradually the flour and baking powder. After, add the double cream. Finish by adding the coconut. Combine well and add the oil.

Pour the mixture in a pan and bake for at least 35 minutes. Let the cake cool down.

Once it is cooled, prepare the icing by melting the chocolate in a bain-marie. Then add the butter so you have a shining chocolate.

Put the icing on your cake and store in the fridge so your icing solidify.
