Coconut Cake

I absolutely adore coconut, I once made a coconut cake for my nan's birthday and my cousin and I ate the cake in one day and my nan only had one slice. I quickly realised that if I want to bake a coconut cake, I would have to stick to loaf cakes or cupcakes as I can't be trusted to make a whole coconut cake and restrain any will power. That is until now. The lovely people at Baking Mad kindly offered me a selection of baking ingredients to make a recipe from their website. I'm quite familiar with Baking Mad's Twitter page, but having a nose on their website, I was pleasantly surprised that they also have a number of recipes which are diverse. The Baking Mad website have a range of recipes such as granola recipes (my fave is their gorgeous granola recipe) and their smoothie recipes (love their breakfast smoothie) which I plan on making and sharing the outcome on my social media sites.
Now back to the cake, this coconut cake is described as "deliciously moist coconut cake, perfect for an afternoon tea or a coffee morning". I'll have to add to that, it's also perfect for lazy weekend treats, after-work picks me up, even breakfast (with a strong cup of coffee), that's if it last that long of course.
 I was initially quite surprised of the length of time that the cake has suggested to be baked, an hour and a half for a coconut cake, I thought was very long. Not being the best with patience, I turned up the gas oven to gas mark 4 and was able to bake this cake 1.10 minutes. The cake was incredibly light, moist, flavoursome, rich and delicious. A flavour explosion in my mouth and one which, as expected did not last particularly long.
Here is how my Coconut cake turned out:
