Crafting Your Syrupy Coconut Cake

Are you ready to embark on a baking adventure filled with coconutty goodness? Gather the ingredients to create your own syrupy coconut cake masterpiece:

For the Syrup:

  • 800 g Sugar
  • 1 lt water
  • Juice of half a lemon

For the Cake:

  • 400 g yoghurt
  • 5 eggs
  • 250 g sugar
  • 250 g margarine
  • 200 g fine semolina
  • 180 g all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 100 g grated coconut
  • 50 g cognac
  • A pinch of salt

Preparing the Syrup

Start by preparing the luscious syrup that will infuse your coconut cake with a delightful sweetness. Place a large pot over heat and add the sugar, water, and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Stir the mixture until the sugar dissolves, and bring it to a gentle boil. Let the syrup simmer for approximately 3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together. Once done, set the syrup aside and let it cool, ready to be poured over your freshly baked cake.

Crafting the Coconut Cake

Now it’s time to create the star of the show—the moist and fragrant coconut cake. In a mixing bowl, combine the sugar and eggs, and beat them together until creamy and well incorporated. In a separate bowl, mix the yoghurt, melted margarine, and cognac to create a flavorful liquid mixture.

Add the fine semolina, grated coconut, and a pinch of salt to the liquid mixture, stirring until everything is combined. In another bowl, combine the baking powder and all-purpose flour, then gradually incorporate this dry mixture into the bowl of wet ingredients. Stir gently until the batter is smooth and homogeneous.

Baking and Assembling

Preheat your oven to 355°F (180°C) to ensure the perfect bake. Grease a baking pan with butter, then pour the coconut cake batter into it, spreading it evenly. Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Once the cake is baked to golden perfection, remove it from the oven. While the cake is still warm, pour the chilled syrup over it, allowing the cake to absorb the delightful sweetness. Watch as the syrup seeps into the layers, imparting a moist and delectable texture.
