This is a delicious cake to bake for christmas time. It’s not difficult and it is very sweet, because it’s also glaze with coconut milk and sweet condensed milk. This cake is frost with cream cheese frosting. It’s my own coconut cake recipe. Ok, enough chit chat let’s start baking and have fun!

  • In the mean time melt your butter with coconut milk in a pan. When the butter is completely melted, put your pan aside and let it cool down,
  • Your egg mixture is now ready,
  • Add your sugar little by little into the egg mixture. Don’t put everything at once otherwise you will lose all the air that you create by mixing the eggs for 5 minutes,
  • Sift your flour and baking powder together,

When your cake is ready let it cool down completely before adding the glaze!! Almost forget leave your cake into the cake pan.

  • 200 gr. of sweet condensed milk,

  • Add your butter into your mixing bowl and mix till the butter is incorporated into the cream cheese,

Tip: If you want some more coconut flavor in your cream cheese frosting add a half of teaspoon of coconut milk!

  • Take you cake out of the refrigerator and put your cake on a serving plate,
  • Put your cream cheese frosting on top,
  • Sprinkle some fresh grated coconut on the creame cheese frosting,

Take your cake, 15 minutes before serving out of the refrigerator. So your cream cheese can get to room temperature.
