Coconut Milk Cake With Chocolate Coconut Milk Frosting #BundtBakers

Some days things do not happen the way you have planned; they go just the other way around. That's what happened when I planned to make this Christmas Cake for the disabled children.  Went early to school, fully prepared with all ingredients, since the cake had a Chocolate Coconut Milk Frosting to be done too.  Reached school and got the ingredients out to make the cake batter and went to preheat the oven the three pin plug was burnt. The school teacher called the office boy, by time I, explained to him what exactly is a three pin plug and he went to purchase one 50 minutes just flew away. 
The school winds off at 4 pm, 15 minutes before the  bell rings to recite  the closing prayer.  Now in hand just an hour.  It was such a rush day.  Any way got started.  The cake was a big one so it too 45 to 50 minutes to bake.  As soon as it was out of the oven just managed to pour the frosting.  

The children were so excited to eat the cake, just managed to take a pic or two.  Served them hot cake with Milk Masala Chai and it got over in few minutes.  
The frosting was so delicious, you must try this variation instead of cream ganache.  This frosting is awesome.  

Ingredients
175 Grams Caster Sugar
175 Grams  Unsalted butter
3 Eggs
175 Grams All Purpose Flour
1  Teaspoon Baking powder
100 Grams  Desiccated Coconut
150 ML  Coconut milk

For the frosting
200 Grams  Dark & Milk chocolate  - half and half
50 Ml Coconut milk
1 Tablespoon Butter
2  Tablespoons Fresh Coconut - lightly toasted

Method

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a ring pan.
In a large bowl beat together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs one at a time. Gently fold in the flour, add the coconut milk and fresh coconut and mix well. Spoon the mixture into the tin and even out the surface a little. 
Bake for about 45 to 50 minutes, until the cake is golden brown and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Leave the cake to cool slightly, then turn out on to a rack to cool a little.

For the frosting
Melt the chocolate  and butter in a pan over a pan of water , when chocolate melts add the coconut milk and whisk till smooth then spread evenly over  the surface of the warm cake. Sprinkle the cake with toasted coconut. 
 Slice and enjoy. This cake was soft, moist and yummy.
