Today I bring a delicious sponge cake with tropical flavors: papaya and coconut.
I love coconut, it’s delicious with all fruits, but when we combined it with papaya, it’s amazing. The result is not only delicious, it’s also a very fluffy and juicy cake.
Ingredients for Papaya and coconut cake:
- 155 gr all purpose flour
- 20 gr grated coconut
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- 55 gr melted butter
- 150 gr sugar
- 2 eggs
- ½ teaspoon vanilla flavor
- 170 gr papaya puree *
- 60 ml coconut milk
- Optional: whipped cream or vanilla ice cream to serve.
* To make the mashed papaya just grind 170 gr of peeled papaya.
How to make Papaya and coconut cake:
First, in a large bowl beat the eggs and add the mashed papaya. Then add the coconut milk, melted butter and vanilla flavor and mix well.
Now add the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and baking soda. Mix well and pour the dough in a greased pan.
Bake in a preheated oven at 200 °C for 40 minutes or until toothpick pierced into the cake comes out clean. Remember that the baking time depends on the pie pan we use to bake the cake.
Finally, let it cool to room temperature and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
