THE INGREDIENTS LIST:
Large-Sized eggs; I used 4.
1/2 cup.Of vegetable oil.
300 grams.Of granulated sugar.
250 grams.Of all-purpose flour.
120 grams.Of grated unsweetened desiccated coconut.
4 Tsp.Of baking powder.
1/2 Tsp.Of salt.
1/2 cup.Of milk.
1/4 cup.Of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
2 Tbsp.Of lemon zest.
1 Tsp.Of pure vanilla extract.
FOR MAKING THE ICING AND GARNISH THE CAKE, YOU’LL NEED THE FOLLOWING INGREDIENTS:
125 grams. Of confectioners’ sugar-sifted.
Approx. 3 Tbsp.Of cream/milk.
1 Tsp.Of vanilla extract.
45 grams.Of toasted sweetened coconut.
To begin, prepare your oven by preheating it to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, also prepare your cake pan by greasing and flouring it.
Mix the eggs and sugar until thick, either with an electric mixer or by hand. After incorporating the oil gradually, mix in the vanilla, then beat in the lemon juice and zest.
Using a pastry blender, combine the flour with the coconut and then the liquid. Mix till there are no lumps,
Pour the batter into the pan that you have prepared (s). Bake in the center of your preheated oven until the cake registers 200 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer; this should take roughly 25 to 30 minutes for layer cakes, 35 to 40 minutes for rectangular cakes, and 40 minutes for cakes baked in tube or Bundt pans.
Allow the cake to cool in the pan for five to ten minutes before removing it. After using a spatula to gently release the cake from the edges of the pan, put the cake out onto a rack to complete cooling.
To decorate the cake when it has cooled, combine the confectioners’ sugar that has been sifted with the vanilla extract and enough cream or milk to make the mixture spreadable.
Spread a thin layer of frosting on top of the cake and sprinkle with toasted coconut to finish it off. Wait until the frosting has hardened before serving.
