Chocolate cake wrapped in coconut


 
    

Hi there. I`m here with my first recipe. In this post, I will share the recipe for these easy and delicious chocolate cakes wrapped in coconut. This one is pretty simple, and it`s just yummy. You might know them by the name of lamingtons :)


  





  For this cake you need the following ingredients; 
for the basic cake you need:  
- 200 gr sugar
- 1 egg
- 50 gr butter
- 2 spoons honey
- 300 gr flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 200 ml milk.


For the frosting, you need:
- 500 gr sugar
- 3-4 spoons cocoa
- 15 spoons water.
 And of course, you need coconut (about 200-250 gr)

Okay, now that we know all the ingredients, let`s start baking.
First, you mix very well the sugar with the egg, butter and honey. Make sure you mix well all the ingredients.



 Then you add slowly the other ones, one by one: the flour, milk and the baking powder.



   After you`re done mixing, put the composition in a tray, and put it in the oven for about 25-30 minutes.



Making the frosting is very easy. You put all the ingredients in a pot and just simmer it on low heat. And it`s done.


Chocolate frosting


While you do the chocolate frosting, the cake from the oven should be ready. You take it out from the tray and cut it into little squares. 




   And finally, you dip the squares into the frosting, and then into the coconut. The frosting has to be a little warm so the cake can absorb the fine cocoa taste.




And your chocolate cake wrapped in coconut is done :)
Enjoy making it, and I`ll be glad to answer your questions if you have any.



Final important tip!!! Look how my work table looks like:




Disaster...I know! But it`s very important to have a bowl of water by your side. As you dip the cake in the frosting and coconut, your hand will be full of frosting. And licking your hand isn`t very hygienic. So use some water to clean up the frosting from your hands. I know it`s a little bit messy, but trust me, it`s worth it! You can use a fork to dip the little squares, but it will take more time to finish.
