Coconut Cake/Coconut Cake Recipe

coocnut cake with suji,easy coconut cake
I have shared many cakes so far we prefer semolina cakes at home .I have shared  few Semolina/Rava/Sugee Cakes before.. You can have a look at Suji/Soji/Sugee Cake cake,Sugee Almond Cake  and Coconut Sugee Cake Basbousa they all are equally good..This Coconut Cake which I'm sharing today is one of our family favourite .We normally make this for Rosaries /get together  at our place..

The measurements  of the cake is easy to remember as I use a cup /tin ( I use milkmaid tin) to measure .Check notes for measurements in gms... I also add cream/malai and milkpowder to make it more soft and fluffy .Do try it out as All ingredients are easily available at home and the measurements are easy to remember..The result is soft and delicious Coconut Cake..The garnish of pista and almonds is purely optional I used it since I had lots of pista  Check the notes for eggless option..You can add cashews or keep it plain it taste great as it is..

Notes
After posting this recipe I had many questions on how to make it eggless....Just replace eggs with 1 cup of yogurt not too sour..
Adding cream/malai makes it more soft ,you can skip if you wish..
I have mentioned that you can use any cup  ... tea cup or measurement cup or tin to measure ,Tin which i always use to measure rice n other stuff is nothing but an empty Nestle Condensed Milk tin ..the regular one which weighs 400 gms when full...
** For those still having doubts here is the measurement in grams..flour,semolina/rava,sugar all weighs 250 gms...dessicated coconut actually weighes 100 gms but you can always add more for more coconut-y feel..i normally add around 150 gms-200 gms dessicated coconut..
Also my 1 cup measures 200 ml...
