Today is saturday and saturday is cakeday. I love baking cakes on saturdays, and today I'm baking this coconut cake again. It's so moist and good with a wonderful coconut smell. You should really try it. I like to bake it in individual small bunt pans. And if you decorate with a sugar cookie it looks like a cake good enough for Marie Antoinette.

100 g butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
