Carrot, Pear and Coconut Cake

One very special day for Greenhouse is 15 October. Why?
It's Ruby's birthday!!

Each year I try to make her a cake that is safe for her to eat, but also delicious for the humans around.

As coconut is apparently her favourite (judging by how much it makes her get her dribble on!) I thought I'd go with that. And 'cause I love it too.

Thanks to CSR I found this great recipe - although altered a tad which means it doesn't actually have any CSR products in it. Sorry!

Here goes:

125g butter
2/3 cup honey (I used raw honey from Williworld which has a great strong flavour)
2 eggs
1/2 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup plain wholemeal flour
1/3 cup coconut milk
2 small carrots, grated
1 large pear, grated
1 cup shredded coconut

Grease and line and 20cm round cake tin.
Cream butter and honey until light and fluffy and add eggs one at a time.
Stir in the sifted flours along with the coconut milk and grated carrot and half of the pear.
Spread mixture into cake tin and top with the coconut and remaining grated pear.
Bake at 180C for around 50 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.
Stand for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

A super moist, heavenly little number - which I'll certainly make again.

Happy Birthday Ruby-girl!
