      This was a super easy cake to make and very budget friendly. A simple cake that my family enjoyed. I would recommend well greasing the cake tin and using a circle of baking paper and greasing it too in the bottom of the tin (mine did stick a little to the tin, even though well buttered). My cake was quite flat...about one inch high....but then there also was very limited ingredients used so this was to be expected.Like most of the older recipes, this cake was simple, easy, used basic ingredients and budget friendly.Photo also to be posted

      Easy, quick and delicious! ~Tasty Dish~ and I enjoyed this cake today for Elevenses with your posted Moroccan Mint Tea. I used half butter/half coconut oil in the batterl. Milk that was starting to go sour was put to good use. I did notice an error in the recipe: the ingredient's list say 1/2 cup milk but in Step 1 is written "cup milk". The dessicated/dried coconut was put in a spice grinder and ground small. Fahrenheit converts to 350 degrees fyi. Prepared for Make My Recipe DownUnder.
