Coconut cake: An unknown delight

Gâteaux à la noix de coco

The new generation probably doesn't know it. But the "coconut cake" is a delicacy that has lulled the childhood of a whole generation. What makes it special? It consists of grated coconut, sugar and sometimes pistachios. The final touch: a few pieces of orange peel for a more sumptuous taste. However, this little delicacy seems to disappear with time. You have to go to places like China Town to find these cakes. 

Recipe and ingredients for "coconut cake

250 ml water

375g white sugar

125g dessicated coconut

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

2 drops of food colouring

Grated orange zest

How to prepare the "coconut cake

Heat the sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat until a syrup forms.

Add the vanilla and food colouring (you can separate the mixture if you want to make different coloured cakes). 

Stir in the coconut and stir gently until all the syrup is absorbed by the coconut.

Add the orange peel pieces to the mixture

Using a mouth spoon, form balls and place on a tray lined with baking paper. Leave in the fridge for half an hour and serve.
