Here is a recipe for a cake which is loosely based on the ingredients used in the iconic Anzac biscuits. I found it here thanks to Tania. It came from this blog which I have added to my regular reads. Anyway, back to the cake……
1/2 cup Golden Syrup
125 grams butter
2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 cup castor sugar
1/2 cup coconut (shredded or dessicated your choice)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
Combine Butter and Golden Syrup in a saucepan, stir over heat until smooth.
Combine sifted flour, sugar and coconut in a large bowl.
Add syrup mixture and mix well.
Using an electric beater gradually beat in the combined eggs and milk.
Pour mixture into a prepared 20x30cm cake tin and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for approximately 30 minutes.
When done the cake will look a lovely golden colour.
60 grams butter (softened)
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
1 tablespoon hot water
Beat all ingredients together. Spread over cake and sprinkle with more coconut.
Here is the finished product.
