About this recipe: This cake is soooo good and moist you should make two...that way you can be sure to get some. I take it to work and it disappears really fast. I sometimes ice it with some coconut essence-flavoured cream cheese icing and then sprinkle coconut all over the top but it's also fine plain!


Serves: 12 

  • 2 cups (250g) plain flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 250g butter, softened
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) coconut essence
  • 1 cup (237ml) buttermilk
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
