Coconut cake with chocolate glaze

Yummy coconut bundt cake with milk chocolate topping and shredded coconut. The cake is moist and fluffy with a mild coconut flavour and is not difficult to prepare. It tastes excellent with a glass of milk :).

Ingredients for the coconut cake:

  • 225 g butter
  • 220 g caster sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 Tbsp coconut liqueur
  • 300 g plain flour
  • 30 g potato starch
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 80 g shredded coconut
  • 90 ml milk


  • shredded coconut for sprinkling

All ingredients should be at room temperature.

Cream the butter and the sugar together in a bowl until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition (the batter will curdle slightly at this step, but it won’t make any difference to the finished cake). Add coconut liqueur and mix. Add the sifted flour, potato starch, baking powder, milk, and shredded coconut. Stir with a spatula until just combined.

Prepare a 30 x 11 cm baking pan lined with baking paper. Spread the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake at 160ºC for 45 minutes or longer, until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Remove from the oven, and cool.

Pour the milk chocolate glaze over the cake and sprinkle with additional shredded coconut.

Ingredients for the milk chocolate glaze:

  • 70 ml whipping cream
  • 120 g milk chocolate chips or chopped milk chocolate

Heat the whipping cream in a small saucepan over medium heat until it is almost boiling. Remove from the heat, add chopped chocolate, and then put away for 2 minutes. After this time, mix until smooth and glossy. Allow the glaze to cool slightly before pouring over a cake.
