Coconut Chocolate Cake

Three colleagues from our firm had their leaving party today and I contributed a coconut chocolate cake to their buffet.
The recipe’s from a book by Sophie Dudemaine called Sophie’s Cakes.

You start off by whisking together 175g sugar and 2 eggs. Instead of the 1dl sunflower oil used in Sophie’s recipe I used 100g soft butter and whisked that in with the egg & sugar as well. Next I added 150g yoghurt.

Then 150g flour and 2 teaspoons of baking powder.

I also added a tablespoon of cocoa powder, an ingredient not used in the recipe. Lastly, I added 50g grated coconut and 100g chopped dark chocolate.

It fitted perfectly in my log cake tin.

It baked in the oven at 180C for 45 minutes and turned out very nicely!

I decorated the cake with marshmallow fluff mixed with grated coconut and chocolate sprinkles.

Pity I cannot tell you what it tastes like as I had to leave the party early. I
am sure it tasted lipsmackingly scrumptous!
