This chocolate cake has to be one of the best ever chocolate cake without actually using chocolate. Its chocolate taste comes from good quality cocoa powder. If your in Australia, I’d recommend Cadbury Bournville Cocoa, Plaistowe Cocoa or Nestle Baker’s Choice.

This cake is certainly a favourite for those hurried times, as it always comes out of the oven as it should each and every time and well, what’s not to love when you know you will make a great cake and only have only one bowl to clean-up afterwards.

Line 24cm round cake tin with greaseproof paper.

Baking Temperature 180 degree Celsius.


200g melted butter, must be liquid.

3/4 cup sifted cocoa powder

3/4 cup caster sugar

3 eggs medium

1 1/2 cups desiccated coconut

1 1/2 plain flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

3/4 cup milk, warmed – not boiled


Preheat your oven to 180 degree Celsius. Place butter, cocoa, sugar and eggs in a bowl and whisk until well incorporated.

Add the coconut,flour and baking powder into the butter mixture and with your hand whisk stir while your intermitedly pouring the milk. Whisk until smooth.

Pour into greased tin and bake for 40 to 45 minutes.

The cooking time does vary slightly, depending on your kitchen temperature, oven strength and seal, ingredient temperature and measurement accuracy.
