Create Bake Make's fuss-free chocolate & coconut cake

Post by AlleyRose on Fri Nov 04, 2016 3:21 pm

One-bowl chocolate coconut cake
Serves: 8
Prep time: 25 mins
Cooking time: 60 mins
Cooling time: 15 mins
Total time: 1 hr 40 mins


  • 250g butter

  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder

  • 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 1/2 cups desiccated coconut

  • 1 1/3 cup caster sugar

  • 4 eggs

  • 3/4 cup milk

  • Coloured sprinkles, to decorate


  • 1 1/2 cups icing sugar mixture

  • 1 tbsp cocoa

  • 1 tsp butter, softened

  • 2 tbsp boiling water

Preheat oven to 160℃ and line the base and sides of a 20cm round cake tin with baking paper.
Chop the butter into 8 pieces, of place into a microwave-safe bowl and cook for 1 minute on medium heat or until melted. Set aside to cool slightly.
Sift the cocoa, self-raising flour and baking powder into a large bowl and add the desiccated coconut, caster sugar, eggs, milk and melted butter. Mix to combine.
Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin and place in the oven to bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
Allow the cake to cook in the tin for 15 minutes before carefully turning out onto a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
Once the cake has cooled completely, you can make the chocolate icing. Sift the cocoa and icing sugar together into a bowl.
Add the softened butter and pour the boiling water directly over the butter.
Using a small whisk, combine all the ingredients until the chocolate icing is smooth. If you find your icing is still a little firm, add an extra teaspoon of boiling water.
Use a large spoon to scoop the icing and place onto your cake. Spread the icing out using a spatula or butter knife until the cake is covered. Decorate with coloured sprinkles.
