This is a lovely quick cake to make.  Golden Syrup and Coconut are a great match in flavours.

I have added the icing recipe that I would normally use for this cake although I appreciate that you can’t see any on the cake in the picture.  One of my family members seemed to have cut it up and started eating it before I could get it on and take a photo. You’ll just have to imagine what it would look like….
