  • 2 cups - flour
  • 1 1/2 cups - coconut flakes
  • 1 teaspoons - baking powder
  • pinchs - salt
  • 1 cups - butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cups - sugar
  • 3 - eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoons - vanilla extract
  • 1 cups - milk
  • Topping
  • 4 tablespoons - peach jam
  • 3/4 cups - coconut flakes
  • Directions:

    Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 9-inch round cake pan with baking spray.

    In a bowl, combine flour, coconut flakes, baking powder and salt; set aside.

    In another bowl, combine butter and sugar, beating with electric mixer until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Add vanilla and slowly add dry mixture and milk. Blend for 1 minute at medium speed.

    Turn batter into treated pan and bake for 45-50 minutes (do not open oven during the first 15 minutes). After 40 minutes, test with a toothpick in center. When it comes out clean, remove cake from oven and allow to sit for 1 minute; then transfer to a plate.

    Spoon jam into a small bowl and mix with a fork to give it a soft and even consistency. While cake is still hot, spread with jam on top and sides. Cover top and sides of cake with coconut flakes.

    Allow to cool before slicing.
