Soft Coconut Plumcake

Soft Coconut Plumcake


Super soft and delicious yoghurt plum cake baked with coconuts is the perfect holiday cake for you. This is a simple cake that you only need one bowl to mix everything up and bake in 20 minutes. In a big mixing bowl, add in 2 eggs and beat the eggs with an electric whisk until about double in size and fluffy. You can also use a hand whisk but this will take you quite some time, just make sure you whisk the eggs really well.


  • 2 eggs
  • 100 g (3.5Oz) of sugar
  • 125 grams (4.4Oz) apricot yoghurt
  • 45 ml of sunflower oil
  • Half a cup (75 grams/ 2.6Oz) of grated coconuts
  • 50 g (1.8Oz) of starch or corn starch
  • 150 g (5.3Oz) of flour
  • 2 tsp of yeast


  1. In a bowl, add in 2 eggs, start mixing with the electric mixer then add the sugar.
  2. Continuing to mix until the sugar and eggs are combined then, pour in the yoghurt, oil and begin to incorporate the starch and flour a little at a time.
  3. Once the flour is mixed in, add baking powder and grated coconut then fold them in until all the coconuts are well dispersed in the cake batter.
  4. Prepare the cake moulds or a loaf tin by greasing then lightly flouring then pans and pour the batter to about three-quarters full.
  5. Bake the cake in 350 degrees Fahrenheit preheated oven (180C) for 20 minutes.
