That's not my cake up there, hehe. That's the scanned image. Now, as you can see it is a lot different from mine. Story goes like this. In Australia we have plain flour and self-raising flour for different recipe uses.
Here in Canada all the recipes use "all-purpose" flour and you add either baking soda or baking powder. I completely spazzed out and didn't put any in this cake. AND on top of that forgot to check if i had enough coconut and eggs. What a day.
My cake turned out perfectly. It wasn't until we cut it and ate it i thought, ooh, that's heavier than i remember, tastes great...very dense and moist...*DING* i remembered about the baking powder!! What a wally! As for the icing, it's straight up icing sugar and milk. Yep, no coconut ice frosting for this baby.
The temperature is stated as "moderate oven, i used 160C/325F for the hour and it was perfectly golden and cooked through =)
Needless to say, the cake was awesome, my husband loved it and it's pretty much almost gone!
I plan on returning and making this "the right way" very soon. Although my husband thinks i should forget things more often....i don't know about that....
