Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs room temperature
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk or whole milk
  • 3/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp mini chocolate chips
  • a handful coconut slices optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325˚F. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan and line with a parchment paper; set aside.
  • Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar for 4-5 minutes using an electric mixer on medium speed. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat until fluffy.
  • Stir in the flour mixture and coconut milk alternately, ending with the flour mixture. Add coconut flakes and 1/2 cup chocolate chips; stir until combined.
  • Put the cake batter in a prepared pan and sprinkle with more coconut flakes (I used coconut slices) and the remaining 2 tablespoon chocolate chips on top. Bake the cake in an preheated 325˚F oven for 1 hour. Let the cake cool in a pan for 10 minutes, then take out and cool on a wired rack completely.
