Preparation time : 15 mins
Baking time : 35 mins
Serves : 6


Whole Wheat flour – 1 cup
Fresh Coconut/Dessicated coconut – ¾ cup finely grated
Vinegar – 1 tbsp
Coconut Milk – ¾ cup (180 ml)
Cane Sugar – ½ cup
Coconut Oil – 3 tbsp
Baking powder – ½ tsp
Baking Soda – ½ tsp
Vanilla extract – 1 tsp

Method :

In a mixing bowl add the coconut milk, cane sugar and mix well for few mins till the cane sugar melts completely and becomes creamy.

Add coconut oil, vanilla extract, vinegar and mix well.

Sieve in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and gently fold it to make a smooth batter.

Add the coconut reserving some for garnish and gently fold them.

Grease a cake pan and preheat oven @180° for 10 mins.

Pour the batter into the greased pan and garnish with reserved coconut.

Bake at preheated oven @180° for 35 mins. A toothpick inserted should come out clean. Mine took exactly 35 mins.

Remove from oven, let it stand for 5 mins. Demould it and let it cool down completely, cut and serve.


*I have used fresh coconut you can use dessicated coconut whichever you can source.

*Also used cane sugar instead of regular sugar. You can use Jaggery instead or use any other sugar.

*I have directly added the fresh grated coconut, you roast the coconut for about 3-5 mins till it changes its colour.

*You can substitute the coconut oil with any other oil.

  1. Have been asked to do a coconut flavoured vegan cake for a client Tomo. So glad, I came across your post :). Do you think I can use yeast instead of the baking powder and baking soda.
