Chocolate Cake with Coconut Icing


This is a simple chocolate cake with a fun coconut icing reminding me of Bounty another British chocolate bar :-), its coconut wrapped in chocolate. So much fun to try and make cakes that taste like candy bars.

What's your favorite, I remember at a doctors office I worked at in the North Carolina mountains they made a mountain dew cake so good. Remember all in moderation!



Ingredients:

  • 4 oz of self raising flour 
  • 4 oz of butter 
  • 4 oz of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-2 tablespoon of cocoa
  • about 1/4 cup frozen -defrosted shredded coconut or you could use dried
  • about 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • a little water to mix icing
Method:

  1. cream the butter and sugar
  2. add the eggs, flour and cocoa 
  3. and bake at 350 for 25 minutes until a knife comes out clean
  4. for the icing mix the coconut with a little water and the icing sugar till you get a thick consistency 
  5. spread onto the cake when its cool, I must confess I didn't wait and ate it warm and gooey :-)





finally here is a cool little fruit/ice cream stand toy we got for Jasmine :-) couldn't resist getting it

Hugs
