Mounds or Bounty? Doesn’t matter where we are in the world! This moist chocolate and coconut cake will remind us what we love in those chocolate bars!
As I recently have a little time, I had been looking on the internet yesterday. Trying to get new, stirring tips, inspiring recipes that We have never tested before, to surprise my loved ones with. Searching for quite some time yet could not discover any interesting things. Right before I thought to give up on it, I discovered this delightful and simple treat by accident over Suncakemom. It seemed so scrumptious on its snapshot, that called for instant action.
It had been not so difficult to imagine just how it’s created, how it tastes and just how much my hubby will love it. Actually, it is rather easy to delight him in terms of desserts. Anyway, I went to the webpage and simply used the simple instuctions which were coupled with nice pics of the task. It really makes life much simpler. I can imagine that it’s a bit of a inconvenience to shoot photographs in the midst of baking in the kitchen as you ordinarily have sticky hands thus i really appreciate the time and effort she placed in for making this blogpost .
Having said that I am encouraged presenting my own, personal formulas in a similar way. Appreciate your the idea.
I was tweaking the initial mixture to make it for the taste of my family. I’ve got to say it was an awesome success. They loved the flavour, the thickness and loved having a sweet like this in the midst of a hectic week. They ultimately demanded more, a lot more. So next time I’m not going to make the same miscalculation. I’m gonna double the volume .
The Coconut cake is provided by SunCakeMom
First of all, we”ll need 3 medium bowls to sort different cake ingredients in.
Mix unsweetened cocoa powder and warm water in the first bowl until we get smooth liquid without any lumps in it. Put it aside a bit to cool.
Meanwhile measure and mix flour with the baking powder.
Separate eggs. Beat egg whites until hard peaks form.
Whisk butter and honey with an electric-mixer until butter has a light yellow color. Then put yolks into the mixture one by one. Mix them well.
With the mixer on low speed, add flour in three additions alternating with the cocoa mixture, mixing each addition just until incorporated.
Pour batter into prepared round cake tin and put it into the 350°F / 180°C preheated oven.
Bake the cake for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
When baked transfer the tray onto a wire rack and let it cool completely.
To make the filling, get a medium sized bowl to put shredded coconut, honey and cornstarch into it.
Pour about ½ cup / 100ml milk into it and blend them well with a wooden spoon until we have a smooth mixture.
Pour the rest of the milk into a saucepan to warm it before we put the coconut, flour and honey mixture into the bowl to boil. Whilst waiting for it to boil, whisk butter.
Put the coconut mixture into it and stir continuously until it bubbles.
Place it aside and wait until it cools down completely and ready to work with. Mix whisked butter evenly into the mixture for smoother consistency.
When cake cooled, get it out of the tray onto a wooden surface and cut it in half horizontally.
Divide the cream into two equal parts. One half will be the filling the other half is the topping.
Spread out one half evenly on the bottom of the cake.
Place it in the fridge for 10-15 minutes to have harder consistency (it helps to work with it later).
Place the other half of the cake on top.
Now it’s ready for the topping. Spread coconut cream on top to cover the cake completely.
Continue spreading the coconut cream on the side as well.
Break chocolate into pieces and put it into a small saucepan. Place saucepan of chocolate on a slightly bigger saucepan of about 1/2 cup / 100ml water. Stir occasionally until melted completely.
Use a spoon to decorate the top of the cake with the melted chocolate. Don’t forget to take care of the sides either.
When finished, put cake in the fridge until the chocolate gets solid again.
