Preparation time: 45 minutes

Baking time: 1 hour

Servings: 15-16 slices


For the cake,

  • 180gm butter
  • 300gm caster sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 250gm self-raising flour
  • Salt
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • 50gm desiccated coconut
  • 200ml milk
  • ½ tsp rosewater

For the syrup,

  • 60ml water
  • 60gm caster sugar
  • ½ tsp rosewater

For the glace icing,

  • 4 tsp icing sugar
  • 1 tsp warm water
  • 1 drop rosewater
  • Pink food colouring


  1. Preheat the oven to 170C. Greased the 3 round cake tins with butter and sprinkle the flour carefully and liberally. Shake the baking tins well to remove the excess flour from the tin.  
  2. Take a bowl and beat the ingredients, butter and sugar well until it becomes fluffy. Add four eggs (one at a time) and beat the mixture until it gets fully combined. Then, add vanilla bean paste and a half teaspoon of rosewater. Combine all the ingredients well.
  3. Take another bowl and sieve the flour mixed with a pinch of salt, ¾ tsp of baking powder and coconut (desiccated). Pour one-third of the dry mix into the wet mixture of butter and eggs (step 2). Beat the mix. Add 200ml milk and remaining dry mixture into it and beat it well again. Beating mixtures properly will give you an even texture. Pour it into greased round baking cake tins (step 1). Spread the batter in the tins evenly and bake it for one hour or until the toothpick inserted in it comes out clean. You can also press the cake gently if it springs then your cake is ready.
  4. Don’t remove the cake from the wire racks until it gets cooled.
  5. Next step is to make the syrup. Add water, sugar and rosewater to a pan and gently heat until the sugar dissolves. Bring it to boil and simmer without a lid for 4 to 5 minutes until it becomes sticky.
  6. Don’t remove the cake from tins. Pour the sticky syrup and give the cake enough time to absorb it. Turn out the cake onto a plate very carefully when the tin is completely cooled.
  7. Now, its time to decorate the cake. Sift the icing sugar and add one tsp warm water, a drop of rosewater and food colouring into a bowl. Mix it well until it becomes thick enough to coat the back of a spoon well (you can also adjust the consistency by adding water and icing sugar). Spread the mix onto a cake and enjoy this super delicious cake with your friends or family.
