For the frosting, only 2 ingredients : coconut cream (90% coconut content) and agave syrup. For the decor, I only used coconut chips.

How to prepare this coconut loaf cake recipe?

We start by making the coconut loaf cake. This is very fast ! Mix the liquid ingredients on one side, the dry ingredients on the other side. Then we incorporate them into the wet mixture, finishing with the grated coconut.

I advise you to do not mix too much, so that the dough rises correctly. Then we pour the dough into the greased mold and put it in the oven. You have to let it cool if you want to add icing.

I decided to also add coconut chips: to roast them they are heated in a pan for a few moments. It is necessary to let them cool well before sprinkling them on the icing.

      Hello Emilie, to make a successful icing made only with coconut cream (90%) you don't need the liquid in the briquette, only the cream. And beat for a long time… As you can see in my photo, the frosting remains creamy, it's not a frosting to pipe in a piping bag. It spreads with a spoon on top of the cake. See you soon :)
