I went over to see the lovely peeps at EheG for an afternoon/evening of hanging out, playing cards and a very yummy bbq and one should never come empty handed. As I brought cookies and other things the last couple times, I decided to try something new this time :) Also thought that it would be fun to share a couple recipes every now and then on this blog - what do you think?
3 1/3 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup cream
vanilla extract or 1 pack vanilla sugar
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
Side note: I substituted all dairy products with lactose free products and flour with spelt flour and it still worked :)
Combine wet ingredients.
Cream butter and sugar until it's soft - this should be really easy when you have a mixer, if you do it by hand, like me, you might take a bit longer but also get toned arms haha
Stir in 1/3 of the flour mixture, add half of the mild mix. Repeat.
Pour it in a pan or two pans - if you don't want to cut it up in the middle for the filling.
340g cream cheese
vanilla in whatever form
3 cups icing sugar (I took less than that, hate overly sweet things and it was absolutely delicious)
2 cups shredded coconut
Cream it all together
The batter tasted to die for and the cake itself was an instant winner with everyone. Even the boys who would always go for a second helping of meat over dessert :)
Three of us took leftovers to work the next day, yay!
Have a lovely weekend everyone, I'm off to celebrate the next birthday and enjoy the sun xx
