Chocolate Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Chocolate Cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F / 177°C.

  • Add 1.5 cups of sifted all purpose flour, mix well. Then add the remaining 1.5 cups of all purpose flour. 
  • Bake for 30-35mins or until when you poke a toothpick and it comes out clean.
  • Let it cool.

Chocolate Glaze:

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl. The glaze should have a thick consistency.

Butternut Topping:

  • Add all the ingredients into a bowl. Mix until well combined and all of the coconut is colored.
  • Spread the mixture into a baking sheet or flat surface and dry for 20 minutes before using.


  • Take the cooled loaf and dip into the glaze.
  • Fully coat the loaf and remove them using a fork, allowing the excess glaze to drip off. 
  • Place the glazed loaf into the coconut topping and roll until fully coated.
