Coconut Candy Cake

  • 30 g butter
  • 200 g shredded coconut
  • 100 g sugar
  • 110 ml milk
  • 150 g condensed milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Red food colouring

Coconut Icing

  • 100 g icing sugar
  • 2 1/2 tbsp coconut cream


Coconut Candy Cake

  • Grease a 27cm x 18cm rectangular baking dish with butter or baking spray.
  • In a non-stick pan, melt butter on low heat. Add in sugar, milk, vanilla extract and food colouring (to desired shade of red). Stir gently to combine.
  • Add in shredded coconut and then drizzle condensed milk over mixture.
  • Over medium-low heat, stir mixture constantly (to ensure it doesn't burn) until liquid is fully soaked up and coconut clumps together.
  • Transfer mixture to baking pan/dish and spread it out evenly. Using a spoon, press down the mixture in single strokes all across the surface, to pack it together and level out the surface. Refrigerate to cool.

Coconut Icing

  • Sift icing sugar into bowl.
  • Add coconut cream 1 spoon at a time and mix until a viscous liquid forms. (note: Icing sugar takes a while to take on the moisture of the coconut cream, so be patient with mixing and do not be tempted to add in more coconut cream until you are sure that sugar has been fully absorbed)

Cake Decoration

  • Put remaining coconut icing into piping bag. Cut a tiny opening in the tip, opening should be no more than 0.1cm wide.
  • Position baking pan/dish in landscape orientation. Draw a horizontal line across the middle of the cake.
  • Pipe the shape of a moon and 5 stars on top left corner of cake to resemble the same on the Singapore national flag.
  • Snip the piping bag tip for a wider opening and fill up the bottom half of the cake with icing.
  • Place in refrigerator to cool. Cut into cubes to serve.
