Why I Love This Recipe

The basic part of the cake came from my grandma, she taught me this basic formula when I was little. And then, with that base, I started to try different things. Here is one

Ingredients You'll Need


100g Softened butter
250g sugar
2 eggs y 1 egg yolk
300g Flour
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Baking soda
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
250 cc Milk
100g chocolate chips
40g shredded coconut

Crispy coconut-meringue top

40g shredded coconut
1 Egg White (big)
80g Sugar (twice the weight of the egg white)


Mix butter and sugar untill it's creamy

Add the eggs one by one and the egg yolk

Add the vanilla extract

Add the coconut

Keep mixing untill it's smooth.

Alternate the flour (previously sifted with the baking powder and baking soda) with the milk.

Add the chocolate chips.

Put in 9 inch (24 cm) savarin cake pan greased with butter and dusted with flour.

Crispy Meringue top

Beat egg whites until foamy. Add the sugar and the coconut and keep beating.

Put this mix on top of the batter and put it in the oven (minimum heat, but pre-heated for a 10-15 minutes)
