Cuckoo Coconut Cake

Miss4 mixing. Miss2 pinching.
The young daughter of a friend of ours made this cake the other day and brought it over for morning tea. It is so simple, it's crazy.

With only four ingredients and each of them with the same measurements, it's as near as you'll get to a one step cake. To show how one step like it is I'll even give the instructions in one sentence :)

You will need:

1 cup self raising flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup milk

Mix all ingredients vigorously in a bowl before pouring into well greased cake tin and cooking at 160 degrees for half an hour, or until cooked through.

If you want a recipe to start the kids on, this would be the one. It's sweet and moist and a little sticky on the fingers and my kids love it.

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
