what a weekend! there was a friend's wedding (wonderful, magic, love!) to celebrate. she looked gorgeous in her dress, like a greek goddess. we danced (even a bit of line dance, and i was in heaven) with a breathtaking view of the city lights at night. the crowd was amazing. thank you friends, for the celebration! it was a good one. and hey, it's exhausting to celebrate and generally just have a good time... my every bone aches (not necessarily from the high heels only...). i feel too tired to utter or write another word. give me a break! laugh.
fittingly, this cake was made by my mom. it's a '3 c' cake (sorry, i'm in marketing!): crumbl-ey, coconut-ey, chocolatey. actually, add a little 'n' for nice.
coconut chocolate marble loaf
(for one large 30cm loaf pan)
4 tbsp. milk
1 small can coconut milk (175 ml)
100 coconut rasps
150 butter, at room temperature
200 g sugar
2 pinches of salt
150 g flour
50 g semolina
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. milk
150 g dark chocolate, crushed
2 tbsp. rum
preheat the oven to 180 degrees. line the loaf pan with parchment paper. combine milk, coconut milk and coconut rasps in a bowl and combine. in a second bowl, stir the butter until creamy, add sugar, salt, and egg and continue to stir until the mixture is of a fair color. add the coconut-milk-mixture. sift in the flour, semolina and baking powder. that's the light, coconut mix. pour half of the dough mix into the loaf pan.
next heat the milk in a small saucepan, add the chocolate and melt slowly. stir in the rum, cool slightly. pour melted chocolate into the dough mix. distribute on top of the coconut mix in the loaf pan. now combine the two mixes by running through it with a fork.
bake for about 35 minutes. remove from the oven, let cool slightly, remove from the pan and let cool completely. serve with cinnamon whipped cream, or such.
