Difficulty:
Easy
Prep Time:
10 minutes
Cook Time:
1 hour 20 minutes
Servings:
Cuts into 12 slices

Ingredients

  • 200g unsalted butter, very soft, plus extra for greasing
  • 200g golden caster sugar
  • 100g desiccated coconut
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 100g coconut yogurt (we used Rachel's), plus more to serve (optional)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 350g medium gooseberry, topped and tailed

For the coconut topping

  • 25g desiccated coconut
  • 1 tbsp golden caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted

Instructions

  • Step 1: Preheat your oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Grease a deep 20 cm round tin and line the bottom and sides with baking parchment. Take a large bowl and add the cake 'ingredients', excluding the gooseberries, with ½ teaspoon of salt, then use an electric mixer to blend all of them into a thick, smooth cake batter - be careful not to overmix once everything is combined. Gently fold in three-quarters of the gooseberries, then transfer the mixture into the tin and level the surface.
  • Step 2: Insert the remaining gooseberries into the top of the cake and bake for 1 hour. Meanwhile, stir together the coconut, sugar and melted butter for the topping. Immediately remove the cake from the oven after 1 hour and sprinkle the topping over it. Bake for an additional 15-20 minutes or until the cake is golden brown and rises and the skewer inserted comes out clean. Store in an airtight container and it will last up to 2 days.
