Coconut and Condensed Milk Cake

My Mum makes a cake that is moist and delicious and it looks like this.
I do not have the recipe so I just made this up.
It pleased a few guests and friends.
Let us see what you think about it.

Ah, in case you are wondering, this is most definitely not a diet cake!

You will need:

2 cups self raising flour
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup milk
1 cup desiccated coconut if you cannot get freshly grated{I used fine cut}
1 can condensed milk
1 cup coconut to decorate cake

All ingredients need to be at room temperature.

Pre heat your oven to 180 Celsius.
Mix all ingredients {except the condensed milk and the second cup of coconut} until you have a homogenous dough.
Cover a baking tin with parchment paper. I used 2 trays of 20cmX20cm as I did not have a bigger one at hand.
The cake has to be no taller than 4/5 cm tall after baking or else it will not be as moist as necessary.
Bake it until a stick is inserted and it comes out clean {about 30 minutes}.
When the cake is still hot make holes on it and drizzle with the condensed milk so that it moistens inside the cake {if your cake is very tall, cut the cake in half horizontally and drizzle inside of the cake too}.
Cover it with second cup of coconut.

Enjoy it with a nice espresso or a nice cup of tea!!!
