Method : How to make

Original Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees C. Place butter, sugar and vanilla in a vowl and beat with an electric mixer until light and creamy. Add eggs and beat well.

  2. Add flour, coconut and milk and beat until well combined

  3. Spoon mixture into a well-greased Bundt tin

  4. Bake for 1 hour or until cooked when tested with a skewer

  5. Cool for 10 minutes and turn out onto a wire rack.


  1. I make a lime syrup and drown the cake in it while it is still hot.

  2. Place water, sugar and lime skin in a saucepan on high and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Turn down the heat to medium and keep cooking until it has thickened but not changed colour.

  3. Take off the heat and add the lime might spit..

  4. When the cake is out of the tin but still hot pour a few amount of the syrup onto the cake, it will soak it up.

  5. Serve with the rest of the syrup and cream.
