the coconut cake recipe is not rocket science, yet i would like to share some tips and suggestions to it. firstly, i have used the coconut milk which is apt for this cake recipe. do not use fresh coconut and is not recommended as it contains moisture which may spoil the cake batter. secondly, you can mix and match the toppings with flavour you require or desire. in this recipe, i have used just coconut topping but can be replaced with chocolate frosting or cream cheese frosting. lastly, i have used the plain flour which can be replaced with wheat flour to make it healthy and nutrient.
