This simple cake is one of my favorite recipes, because I love coconut. The recipe has been mostly eyeing the ingredients so I tried to make the recipe. This has been in my family for years.

  • Whisk coconut and sugar together in a bowl. Sift in flour and whisk to combine. Make a well in the middle of the mixture and set aside.

  • Whisk eggs together in a small bowl and pour into the well in the flour mixture. Add enough milk to reach a slightly thickened, but runny, texture. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Remove from the oven and let cool for 20 minutes. Pour simple syrup over cake before serving.

Cook's Note:

For a better-tasting syrup either add rose water or coconut extract. You can pour syrup over individual slices rather than the entire cake, if you prefer.
