This cake is such a last-minute throw-it-together affair. It’s quick, easy, doesn’t need any icing, and it tastes great.

Simple coconut cake: five minutes to mix, no icing, tastes and looks great.

  1. Awh, lovely, I made very similar (no egg) coconut cake the other day but didn’t have time to write a blog post about it. And I agree, it’s a lovely and very moist cake! 🙂

    P.S: Sorry to mention but I’ve just noticed, your print version of this recipe has a ‘Summer Pasta with Basil, Tomatoes and Cheese’ in its title.
