Eggless Coconut Cake - Baking For Baking Eggless Group

Last month I started a group to try out our hand in eggless baking. The group known as Baking Eggless deals with recipes using eggs. We try to convert the recipe with eggs to an eggless one. This is all about experimenting. Any one who is adventurous can join the group. For the first month, I selected Coconut Cake from indobase. I tried curd as the egg substitute and the cake was so soft and moist. After experimenting three different recipes, I am giving the best recipe here. I will post the round up of all the cakes in three days.
Linking this to Anjali's Cakes, Cookies and Desserts.

Recipe Adapted From Indobase
Flour-1 1/4cups
Fresh Grated Coconut-3/4cup
Baking Powder-1tsp
Baking Soda-1/2tsp
Vanilla Essence-1tsp
Granulated Sugar-3/4cup 
For The Frosting:
Butter- 1 1/2tbs
Icing Sugar-5-6tbs
Coconut Powder/Flakes-1/4cup

1. Preheat oven to 175C.
2. Mix flour, baking powder and baking soda in a bow.
3. Cream together butter and sugar.
4. Add curd and cream it together.
5. Add vanilla essence and milk and mix well.
6. Add the flour mixture and fold in the batter gently.
7. Add the grated coconut and mix.
8. Pour into a greased and dusted square tin.
9. Bake for 15minutes. The cake browns fast.
10. Cover with a foil and bake for another 30minutes.
11. Remove from oven when a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
12. Place the cake with the tin on counter for 10minutes. 
13. Invert cake on to a wire rack and cool.
14. Transfer the cake to a serving plate.
15. Beat butter and icing sugar for frosting.
16. Apply it on the top of the cake. Sprinkle coconut flakes or powder on top.
17. Slice it up and serve.

A closer look at the crumb. It was so soft and fluffy.

  2. yum cake. looks so delicious

  3. I am loving that white coconut glaze and that puffed up top (seriously egg-less??)
    My first experience with eggless baking was very bad; the cake sank in the middle and it was horribly textured, and then I never got the courage to lift up. But after looking at your cakes, I'm again motivated; will post something really soon. :)
