Coconut Cake

A very delicious, moist Coconut Cake, all the ingredient measurements are easy to remember. Fast, easy and so good. The perfect breakfast, snack or dessert recipe.

I tried this cake a while back after I saw it in an Arab lady’s Instagram page. The recipe was completely written in Arabic but with the little understanding I have of the language, I figured out the recipe somehow. But it was a very straight forward recipe, all the ingredients are in 1 cup measurements, so it was easy to take meaning.

You just have to make it once and then you wouldn’t need to open the page again for the recipe, it’s that simple to remember. 

I made a YouTube video after a long long time. One of the new year resolutions I made was to post more in my YouTube channel. So I started with this easy cake and I had a lot of fun shooting it. Please do check it out and subscribe to my channel if you have not already.

    Tried this recipe with fresh coconut. I had to increase the baking time, but the cake was delicious! Love your recipes, keep up the good work

  3. I am so excited to come across your blog. I have bookmarked so many recipes I need to try. I started with this coconut cake and it was perfect, quick and tasty.

  4. Is it regular yogurt? Can Greek yogurt be used? Can we use fat free Greek yogurt (that’s what they sell at the local dairy store). Thanks!

  5. Very delicious!! I used regular sugared coconut. And half butter half coconut oil melted. And I also used coconut extract. And vanilla yogurt (what I had on hand). I topped with a coconut flavored glaze and coconut flakes. Super good. Thank you.
