    As an alternative to baking paper, it is possible to brush the pan with oil and sprinkle with a little flour: in this way, the cake will not stick to the mold.

    1. Pour the coconut cream into the pan and bake for 40 minutes. The toothpick test is recommended to verify that the heart of the cake is also cooked to perfection.
    2. Serve the cake with icing sugar or with grated coconut.

    Alice's comment - PersonalCooker

    The contrast between the heat of the oven and the freshness of the coconut gave me the right idea to prepare this delicious cake. If you want to make it even more delicious, you can also enrich it with some dark chocolate chips or - why not? - even fill it with a chocolate cream, but I like it this way, natural, perhaps accompanied by a cup of good coconut milk.
