  • Garnish with almond flakes (optional)

  • Preheat the oven at 180 degree Celsius for 10 minutes
  • Bake for 60 to 70 minutes or until skewer inserted comes out clean. 

I have added colours to the batter made three parts added few drops of colour mixed .
Here i have used 10 inch heart shaped cake tin you can bake this in 10 inch round or 13×9inch rectangular pan.
Baking time may differ it may take about 55 minutes to 1 hr 10 minutes depending upon your oven temperature.
The texture of this cake is soft but not super soft because of addition of desiccated coconut but the taste and texture is simply amazing.
