Coconut sponge cake recipe (Fat free)

Chef Jeena got a sweet tooth again and just had to make a wonderful coconut sponge cake recipe.

This coconut sponge cake is soft, tastes great and is simple to make.

There are no excuses to not try this exellent coconut sponge cake recipe yourself because it even has no added fat.

Ingredients for coconut sponge cake

5 Tbsp Plain Flour
2 Medium Eggs
4-5 Tbsp Sugar
5 Tbsp Desicated Coconut
2 Cap/Lid Fulls Vanilla Essence
1/8 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
2/8 tsp Cream of Tartar
(If you use self raising flour you don't need the bicarb and cream of tartar)

Drop Vanilla Essence
Powdered Sugar
Drop Water

How to make a coconut sponge cake recipe

Crack eggs into a bowl.

Add sugar and whisk with a fork.

Add vanilla essence.

Whisk in the flour with a fork.

Add bicarbonate of soda and cream of tartar, whisk.

Add coconut and mix well.

If it is a little too runny just add another tablespoon of flour and mix it well.

Pour into a greased and floured oven dish/tin. Cook on the middle shelf of a pre-heated oven at 180C for approx 15-20 minutes.

Try not to open the oven door until you think it's nearly ready.

Leave to cool, don't take out your cake till it has cooled down or it may fall apart.

Once cooled make the icing.

Add powdered sugar to a little water and vanilla essence, only add very little water at a time as it doesn't take much water to make icing.

Spread on the top of your cake, let the icing drip down the sides and garnish with fresh strawberries.

wow, this is nice.. and fat free too! have to try it out in my new oven :)

as far as the fish recipe goes - you can try the same recipe with sardines.. banana leaves give the fish the right flavor.. i dont know what else would substitute it.. another option would be to use sardines and grill it, using the same recipe for paste.. try that and let me know how it went :)

Manjula said...

Hey Jeena,
I am back after a long time. Nice recipes here.
Yummy cake. I love anything with coconut in it.

Manjula said...

Hey Jeena,
I guess this isn't exactly fat free. Egg Yolks and coconut have fat in them. I read some recipes that use applesauce instead of butter to make them fat free. Never tried though.

Viji said...

Looks yummy Jeena. Tempting photos. Viji

SeeC said...

Love your sponge cake. I prefer to have fat free. I will try this sometime.

As usual Excellent pictures.

Chef Jeena said...

Hi Mansi Desai I sure will edit your link :) Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Mona thanks for visiting my blog I will stop by yours too. :)

Hi Manjula glad to see you back blogging again. :) I don't consider an egg or a coconut to be 'a fat' even though they have oils in them. I guess to some people "butter free" would be more correct. I never heard of using apple sauce instead maybe it would be nice for an apple cake. :)

Hey Viji thanks for stopping by it was yummy too! :)

Hi Seec I'm glad you like the pictures :) Give it a go and let me know how it went? :)

Shella said...

Hey Jeena. your cake looks yummy. I might sound dumb - infact, i am dumb to ask this, but am a new baker, n I fail to u'stand how can 5 tbspn of flour make a cake?? Isint that too small an amount to make a cake?? Pls pardon my ignorance.

Zea said...

Hi Jeena,

I was wondering if or how I could make this gluten free. We have made your mango coconut cake and loved it. This one looks so delicious we want to make it as well. Thanks.

Chef Jeena said...

Hi Zea, I will have a look at this recipe and get back to you about it today.

I am glad you enjoyed my mango and coconut cake. :-)

Do come back as I have gluten free garibaldi biscuits, jam tarts, coconut rose tarts and crunchy biscuits coming up real soon.

Thanks for visiting my food recipe blog. :-)
