Coconut Cake

September 28, 2016

Originally called our Sunburst (now called Nuttelex with Coconut Oil) Cake, this cake is essentially a coconut butter cake that is butter free. Served with tea this cake is the ultimate afternoon indulgence, with just  a light dusting of icing sugar. However,  if you want to up the presentation & coconut anti you could drizzle with a coconut glaze, or top with a buttercream style icing.

  • Yields: 8 Serves


250 g Nuttelex

1 cup castor sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

3 eggs

2 1/2 cups self raising flour
