  3. Whisk the coconut milk and oil till well combined and set aside
  4. Sift the flour, baking powder and cocoa into a large mixing bowl and add in the coconut and castor sugar and mix well

  7. Serve it as is or with a dusting of icing sugar and cocoa or with some melted vegan chocolate or a vegan buttercream frosting – however you serve it – you are bound to enjoy it
