Recipe's preparation

  1. CAKE:

    Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

    Soak the coconut in the boiling water and leave for about 5 minutes

    (until the coconut soaks up the water).
    Put all the ingredients (including the undrained soaked coconut)

    into the Thermomix and mix (about speed 5) until you have a soft batter.

    Pour into cake tin (I use 2 loaf tins).
    Cook for about 25-35 minutes, or until ready

    (cake tester inserted should come out clean).

     

    MALIBU CREAM CHEESE FROSTING:

    Beat the butter in the Thermomix until soft and creamy.
    Add the cream cheese and beat until smooth.
    Add the icing sugar, coconut and Malibu and mix until combined.

    Ice the cake with the frosting.

  • very nice recipe Reading the comments I used...

    Submitted by farawaygh on 30. April 2017 - 19:27.

    very nice recipe. Reading the comments I used pineapple juice for soaking the coconuts. Since I prefer clean cooking I exchanged the sugar with dried pineapple, using 170gs. The flour I used was 100g spelt, grinding 1min on spead 10. Then I added the other flour plus the chopped dried pineapple. shreddered the whole thing for appr. 30 secs and poured it into another bowl. Butter and eggs creamed regular and then added all other ingrediences. It turned out perfect. I guess you could also soak the pineapple with the coconut. Just mixing it with the flour has the advantage that it doesn't get so sticky.
    Without icing if is a perfect clean cake.
    But I used icing, and children friendly without the rum, I used the coconut syrup, that you also use for cocktails. As it contains sugar it is not as clean as could, but for me perfectly allright.
    For sure, clean baking means the consistency of a cake changes, as sugar has other chemical reactions when used in baking, but it will be worthwhile nonetheless.
    Actually, I was only dropping by from Germany, and if permitted I may place the recipe in the clean version on our own, German thermomix recipe webpage, linking to this recipe as the original.

  • I made this recipe and added

    Submitted by ammie2 on 30. November 2016 - 01:38.

    I made this recipe and added in pineapple chunks as I love both pineapple and coconut flavours together and it was delicious!

    Had to leave it baking for another 30 mins as I think the batter was too wet with the addition of the coconut. 

    Am definitely making this cake again!

  • My husband loves it! I cut

    Submitted by ccgardens on 11. April 2015 - 03:26.

    My husband loves it! I cut the sugar to 180g & used 1 egg & egg whites instead of 3 eggs (as I failed to check my fridge before I started tmrc_emoticons.) & the recipe still worked. I didn't make the icing, not sure that I will as the cake is being happily eaten without it. I baked it in a springform cake tin & it cooked up perfectly in 35min.  Thanks for the recipe.

  • Superb cake! I prefer it

    Submitted by L plates on 4. August 2014 - 09:40.

    Superb cake!

    I prefer it without the icing - kids love it for school in cupcake/muffin size. I used 1/2 cup coconut flour (leftover 'bits' from making coconut milk- dried in oven and then milled) with 2teasp of baking flour and then topped up with SR flour to make the total 200g.

    muffins still took 20min or so... (Getting used to a different oven)

    Big winner!

  • Delicious, moist & so easy.

    Submitted by amk76 on 11. July 2014 - 19:33.

    Delicious, moist & so easy. It was loved by all who tried today. I made the cake & icing last night & then iced it this morning. Mine also took 50mins to cook & at the 30min mark I was starting to think it wouldn't cook at all. I had it in a single loaf tin. For those with no Malibu (or butterscotch schnapps) I used Baileys & would do so again. This will definitely be my go to cake for morning teas, etc.

    Submitted by Ness_r_au on 10. June 2014 - 17:02.

    Thanks for the recipe! This cake is super tasty & easy to make which is saying something coming from a non-baker.  The icing was also good although I found the thermomix struggled to sufficiently beat the butter to the desired consistency as it kept flicking it off the blade and sticking to the edge of the bowl.  Next time I'll make the icing by hand and beat the butter more to see if it makes a difference.

    Submitted by tracy_hilton on 14. April 2012 - 22:18.

    I cooked in a round springform pan and had to cook for 50 mins to get cake cooked in the middle but was lovely.  Also also need half the amount of icing if only 1 cake is made.

    This was so lovely! But, unfortunately it stuck to the pan and refused to come out. I didn't get to do the Malibu icing. We ate it in bits and everyone said it was delicious!

  • No need to drain the soaked

    Submitted by banchor on 26. December 2010 - 11:32.

    No need to drain the soaked coconut, it all goes into the cake mix.

    The boiling water soaks into the coconut to make it moist and fluffy.

    Is the 150 ml boiling water for soaking the coconut included or is the cocont drained before adding to bowl?
