Malibu Tropical Coconut Cake
This Malibu Tropical Coconut Cake has got to be my favourite. I just love coconut and the flavour comes out beautifully in this very tropical cake.
I cooked this for the first time when I had my parent-in-laws over for dinner.
This was our dessert with a scoop of low-fat ice cream. It turned out to be so delicious we all wanted more.
It’s hard to describe this one, it really is one you need to make and try for yourself.
So quick and easy to make in under an hour.
This is written for Thermomix (TM) users however it can easily be translated to use with a food processor or egg beaters and bowl.

375 grams icing sugar

Wet baking paper and shake off excess water. Line loaf tin with baking paper.

Malibu Cream Cheese Frosting:
