This is one of my all time favourite bakes, it is so easy to make and it is perfect on its own or with some custard as a dessert. I do have a Slimming World friendly version of this here.
- 225g margarine
- 225g caster sugar
- 4 eggs
- 250g self raising flour
- 50g dessicated coconut
- 1tsp vanilla extract
- 1tsp baking powder
- Dessicated coconut
Preheat oven at 170c.
Grease and flour a baking tin, I use 9×11 inches tray. Set aside.
Cream the margarine and sugar together till it is light and creamy.
Add the eggs, one at a time, followed by a spoonful of the flour.
Once all eggs have been added, add the vanilla extract, followed by the rest of the flour, baking powder and dessicated coconut. Mix all ingredients well together and transfer into prepared tin.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
Once the cake baked, let it cool slightly before removing from the tin.
Melt some jam in the microwave and spread all over the cake. Sprinkle with coconut and cut into slices.
