"This is a delicious cake which uses up half a can of coconut milk - which I make when I have to use up the remaining coconut milk from other recipes. It also freezes well."

This cake has such a lovely velvety texture and wonderful flavour! I made up a simple frosting of butter, icing sugar, coconut milk and coconut extract to pull the flavours from the cake. Topped it with toasted coconut. DH loved the cake. Will be making this for my visiting family soon. Thank you Ellie for sharing. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
