This recipe is not mine, I saw it in a Swedish magazine a few weeks ago and thought I should give it a try.
The only deviation I’ve done from the original recipe is that I roasted (in a dry frying pan until they get some nice light brown color) the coconut flakes first to enhance the flavor. However, this also makes the cake much darker so if you prefer a little less coconut flavor and a much less “dirty” looking cake…don’t roast the coconut.
“Coconut Breakfast Cake”
• About 2/3 – 3/4 cup unsweetened Coconut flakes, roasted.
• 2 Eggs.
• 2 oz butter, melted.
• 1/2 tsp Vanilla Powder (i.e. 100% ground vanilla beans, not the sugar based vanilla flavored products!)
• Some fresh berries for decoration and taste.
Mix the butter and coconut flakes and let stand for a few minutes.
Stir in the eggs and vanilla powder, and put the mixture in a small bowl.
(Note: It did rise a bit, so it’s good if the bowl is slightly larger than being full to the rim.)
Place the bowl in the microwave oven and run on full effect for about 90 seconds.
Flip the cake onto a plate and serve with fresh berries.
Done, fast and simple!
I have to be honest and say that I personally wasn’t too impressed with it, it was a bit…too much.
Don’t get me wrong, it didn’t taste bad and it kept me full for a very long time…I guess I’m just more of an eggs-and-bacon kind of guy ;)
Also I normally don’t like cooking stuff in the microwave, just don’t feels like cooking…
But I decided to put it up on the blog anyway, since we all have different preferences.
If you try it out I’d be happy to hear what you think of it!
Have a nice day!
