  • In a large mixing bowl,combine together,whole wheat flour,baking soda,baking powder,salt,toasted coconut and grated jaggery. Mix until everything is combined.
  • In a another bowl,mix together coconut milk,vegetable oil,scraped vanilla and vinegar.Pour this into the prepared dry ingredients.
  • Mix gently with a wooden spatula,just until combined.( Do not over mix)
  • Pour this batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
Notes:
  • For preparing toasted coconut, spread 3/4 to 1 cup freshly grated coconut on a baking tray and bake at 170 deg C until golden for about 5 to 10 minutes,stirring once or twice in between.Allow it to cool completely before adding it to the dry ingredients.
  • To toast coconut on the stove top,spread 3/4 to 1 cup grated coconut in a pan and cook over medium heat ,stirring frequently until it turns golden.
  • If you are making muffins,adjust the baking time accordingly.(It may take about 15 to 18 minutes)
  • Sprinkle more toasted coconut on the cake before serving,if desired.
  • If you like your cake to be less sweet ,use only 1 cup jagerry .
  • If jaggery is not available,you can use brown sugar instead.

    1. Hi Neela... Thank you for visiting Kurryleaves..regarding your question....
      Baking soda react with vinegar ( or any acidic ingredient) to produce carbon dioxide which give the batter a lift during baking....so vinegar is essential for this recipe.. or you can use lemon juice..
      Fruit salt contains baking soda and citric acid..so you could substitute fruit salt for baking soda and vinegar.. ( although i've never tried it)...do let me know...okie..
      happy cooking

  12. Hello! What size cake pan did you use to bake this beautiful cake? It looks lovely and it is very tasty.

  13. Hi, I just baked this cake. It looks good, but didn't rise as much and somehow the coconut flavour is subdued. Maybe I used the packaged one that's why. Will try again soon.
