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
Cake
  • 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

Icing

  • 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.

 

 

 

Coconut and chocolate cake

It has been a while since my last post. I have been baking old recipes or random recipes without writing quantities while doing them so I am unable to remember now.
Today I am sharing this recipe of coconut and chocolate cake. Two ingredients which are tasty when mixed together.
Serves 6
  • 50 g desiccated coconut
  • 200 g chocolate
  • 130 g sugar
  • 80 g butter
  • 120 g flour
  • 3 eggs

Preheat the oven at 180° C.

In a bain-marie, let melt the chocolate

In a bowl, mix butter and  sugar. Whip well to get a creamy mixture. Then add the egg and after the flour. After, add the melted chocolate. Combine well and add the coconut.

Pour the mixture in a pan and bake for at least 35 minutes but not too long if you don’t want to have a dry cake!

 

Coconut and Pineapple Bread

I have noticed that I have a can of crushed pineapple in my cupaboard. I always buy pineapple slices so I didn’t know what to do with this can. I decided to mix it with some coconut to make this tropical recipe!

 

 

 

For 10 persons

  • 250g flour
  • 80g butter
  • 150g sugar
  • 200g crushed pineapple
  • 75g dessicated coconut
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder

In a bowl, combine the flour and the baking powder. Make a well in the centre and add the butter. Work with the fingers until you have a grainy mixture.

Add to this mixture sugar, coconut, crushed pineapple, milk ad egg. Stir with a wooden spoon until you get a smooth mixture.

Put the batter in a pan and bake for 1h15.

You can serve this sunny recipe with vanilla ice cream!
