Chocolate Fudge Coconut Cake

By • Sep 6th, 2012 • Category: Baking Projects

Huzzah, it’s spring! It’s so nice to have sunshine again. Which means, I can take photos by my favourite spot in the house again without worrying about lighting. I missed food blogging, trust me. But I’ve also been really busy with my Happee Monkee shop on Etsy as well as HardtoFind. It’s been so great, it’s really humbling and motivating.

Aside from work, Mr. G and I did our first 10km run at the July 2012 Melbourne Run. It took quite a bit of pleading before Mr. G finally signed up and we did great! I couldn’t have done it without him and was very proud that he finished it with me. This run was a personal achievement for me as I’ve been wanting to do it for awhile now. And though we didn’t win any medals, I reckon we finished in good time (for newbies) at 77 minutes.

I also have exciting news to share! Happee Monkee will be setting up stall at the upcoming The Fine Design Market. So if you like to meet moi in person, do drop by the Manningham City Square, 687 Doncaster Road, Doncaster on the 16th of September 2012. We’ll be there from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. with our wares. It’s going to be so much fun!

Here’s a peek of the table I’d set up to make sure it’ll be sweet eye-candy on the day. (Great excuse for me to use some items I’d collected in Japan. :) )

There’s apparently going to be quite a humdrum of activities at the market as it’s the Grand Opening. So, if you have

kiddies, bring them along. There’ll be face painting, art workshops, library storytelling, balloon twisting and lots more. There’s also live music at the market so bring your dancing shoes if you feel up for it.

And after all that fun, have a slice of delicious chocolate fudge coconut cake. It’ll be the perfect way to end the weekend.

  1. I love chocolate and coconut. Will definitely give this recipe a try. Exciting news with the stall at The Fine Design Market! Good luck and hope to see a post on that later! We’re missing you in Sweden, especially now that it’s autumn (and soon, WINTER! No…..!), really need you here to brighten the gloomy days!

  2. Hello Sylvia! So lovely to hear from you. Thank you and I will remember to take photos of the day. Only 5 days to go now. Sweden is still breathtakingly beautiful in winter. You and your family will always be on our mind. xoxo

  3. Herro Mable! This cake sounds so delicious and seems so easy to make!! Do you think substituting the coconut essence with some virgin coconut oil and coconut flakes will do?

    We mish you and Mr G! <3 Great to hear that things are going well for your business! :D xoxo

  4. Holla Mavis! I guess there’s no harm trying. However, if you use virgin coconut oil, perhaps you can reduce the portion. Instead of 1 tbsp, try 2 teaspoons. I’m not sure how much stronger coconut oil is compared to coconut essence.

    We miss you & Fredrik too! :) Congrats on your wedding!
