Ready… Steady… Bake…

  • Preheat your oven to 190°C / Fan 170°C / Gas Mark 5 then grease and line a 2lb loaf tin with baking parchment.
  • Whisk the eggs and caster sugar together in a food mixer, on high, for 5 minutes until light and fluffy then using a metal spoon, fold in the flour, ground almonds and melted butter.
  • Set aside a teaspoon of the coconut for the icing then fold in the rest of the coconut.
  • Spoon the mix into the prepared tin then bake in the centre of the oven for 45 minutes (test with a skewer, if it comes out clean then it’s cooked!)
  • Allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then remove from the tin and leave to cool completely.
  • Meanwhile to make the drizzle... place the icing sugar into a bowl, add 1 tbsp water then mix to a paste.
  • Add a few rose water drops at a time, until the icing has a hint of rose. Adding more water if needed to make the icing thin enough to drizzle. Stir in the set aside coconut.
  • Drizzle over the cooled cake, decorate with the flowers then leave to set before serving.
