Light Chocolate Cake with Coconut and Almond Glaze

Chocolate and coconut is a combination that can never go wrong and an all time favorite flavor combo of mine. Just think about the bounty chocolate bar. My next cake recipe is a light chocolate cake with a sweet and delightful coconut and almond glaze. It is quite an easy cake and doesn't take much time at all. I hope you give it a try.


Ingredients for the cake:
100 g caster sugar
100 g self-raising flour
2 eggs
100 g butter
2 table spoon coca powder
1 tsp vanilla sugar or vanilla paste

Ingredients for the glaze:
4 dl desiccated coconut
3 table spoon roasted almond flakes
1 dl golden syrup
1,5 dl sugar
2 dl double cream
50 g butter

1- Begin with whisk butter and sugar for the cake until creamy in the consistence, then add one egg at a time and whisk for 10 second each. Preheat the oven at 180 degrees.


2- Sift the flour, vanilla sugar and cocoa powder and fold it in the wet mix. Then put it in a cake tin (see above photo).

3- Bake the cake for about 15 minutes until done. Check with a knife if it is done or not. 

4- While the cake is baking in the oven you can make the glaze. Simply add all the ingredients in a sauce pan and on medium heat. Let it come to a boil and then turn down the heat and let it simmer for 5 minutes.


 5- Take out the cake when done and spread the coconut glaze over it and put it bake in the oven for another 12 minutes until golden brown.

                                                    I like to serve it with a glass of milk :)

Enjoy !
