1 cup Self Raising Flour
1 cup Dessicated Coconut
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Milk
3 tablespoons Butter or Margarine - melted
1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
Mix the Flour, Coconut and Sugar together in a large bowl.
Beat the Eggs and Vanilla Essence into the Milk, add to the dry ingredients and mix.
Add the melted butter and beat well. (I don't use an electric mixer usually, I just beat it in with a whisk or wooden spoon).
Pour into a greased and lined cake tin and bake in moderate oven for 30-35 minutes until golden and cooked in the centre.
Ice with any plain icing you like and top with shredded coconut.
See how long it lasts in your house!!
