Made a delicious cake this morning, just had a piece for lunch and thought I'd share the recipe:
6oz butter or marg
6oz caster sugar
2 large eggs
6oz S R Flour
2oz dessicated coconut
Cream butter and sugar, beat in eggs, fold in flour and coconut, spoon into a lined 2lb loaf tin and bake for 1hour (aprox) - 180 degrees or 160 degrees for a fan oven.
It will be a lovely golden colour - test with a skewer to make sure centre is cooked.
Just kind of made up the recipe but it really reminds me of a cake my Gran used to make when I was a little girl, golden and crunchy on the outside and moist inside, perfect with an afternoon cup of coffee (or in my case anytime of the day).
