What is Christmas without a cake? Our Vegan Coconut cake makes a delicious alternative to a fruit cake and uses our deliciously creamy coconut milk! We decorated it with some trees, but you could also use desiccated coconut to turn it into a giant snowball!

Ingredients

  • Vegan Coconut Cake

  • 450g Plain Flour
  • 3 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • A good pinch of Salt
  • 300ml Vegetable oil
  • 300g Caster sugar
  • 600ml Thai Taste Coconut milk
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • Vegan Buttercream Icing

  • 450g Icing sugar
  • 250g Vegan butter alternative
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Steps for cooking

    The Cake

  • 1. Preheat an oven to 180C and grease the sides and line the base of 2x 7inch Springform tins with baking parchment. If you want a taller stacked cake you can multiply the recipe.
  • 2. In one bowl we are going to combine all the dry ingredients and in another all the wet cake ingredients.
  • 3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry bowl and use an electric whisk to combine all the ingredients. Divide the mixture between the two lined baking tins.
  • 4. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes. The top will look golden brown and the edges will have come away from the sides of the tin.
  • Transfer to wire cooling racks and leave them cool. It may also continue to shrink a little away from the edges.

    For the Buttercream

  • 1. In a mixing bowl whisk the butter and sugar together until white & fluffy. Add a pinch of salt and vanilla extract and mix in.
  • 2. Do not attempt to ice the cake until it has completely cooled.
  • 3. We sliced each cake horizontally and layer the buttercream in between each layer.
  • 4. Then gave the cake an even coating around the outside.
  • 5. To make it extra Christmassy we used some pine, that we trimmed into Christmas tree shapes, for decoration.

Chef’s Tips

We made this recipe quite simple on flavours, but you could layer seasonal fruits and jams in each layer for an even more indulgent cake!

Did you know?

Most Thai families don’t celebrate Christmas at home with decorations, trees and gift-giving, but will get involved in the sales, lights and decorated trees in public spaces and of course a Santa or two!
