Ingredients - 

Whole Wheat Flour 1 cup
Baking Powder 1/2 tsp
Baking Soda 1/2 tsp
Cardamom Powder 1/2 tsp
Wet ingredients - 
Milk 1/2 cup
Olive oil or Coconut Oil 1/2 cup
Sugar 1/2 cup
*Coconut, grated 1/2 cup (I used fresh coconut)

* Dried coconut powder and frozen and thawed grated coconut can also be used.

Method Of Preparation -

Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Grease and line a 6 inch cake tin. 

In a mixing bowl, sift the flour couple of times. Sprinkle baking powder, baking soda and cardamom powder. Set aside.

In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients listed except the grated coconut, until the sugar is dissolved.

Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and gently mix to make a thick batter.

Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin. Tap it a couple of times on the counter to release any trapped bubbles.

Bake in the middle rack for about 30-35 minutes. Please check after 25 minutes as each oven is calibrated differently. 

Remove from the oven and allow it to cool.

Slice as needed after the cake has completely cooled.

  10. The cake sounds delicious, Harini, I can go with the desiccated coconut as well right or do you think the moisture from the fresh coconut makes a difference?
