    Wow Aarthi what an invention.Dfntly cake should've tasted yummy.

  2. The Yogi Vegetarian

    I love the way you use fresh coconut; looks really moist and tasty. Once you have invented your own basic eggless cake recipe that works for you every time, you can adapt it to make any number of delicious different cakes. I think we must be on the same wavelength this week: I have just made a cake with coconut in, too. Look out for it in my next post!

    Dear .. as always perfectly done... i am a big fan of you... not only for cooking but also the way you post it... i can never do it.
    I check your colors of life too and loved your narration and it makes you feel my own sister .. who opens up everything to me,... you are so sweet and so close to my heart.

    I have a doubt dear..your ingredients shows 1 cup/120gm.. but in my measurement cup 1 cup =250ml. will there be such a big difference in ml and gm? i am confused.. please help

    With love and best wishes

    Thanks for your sweet comment..I am happy that u check my blog and like it..My fans are always close to my heart too..

    Yes the cup measure is 250 ml, but once you weigh it in a measuring scale, it gives you 120 gms.

  9. Hema

    With the coconut milk, coconut and cardamom, shud have been really flavorful and yummy..

    I love the idea of fresh coconut in this recipe - it is rare to see it fresh! And the addition of coconut milk too.

  26. Vidya Viswanath

    Hi Aarthi,
    Can I frost this cake with chocolate ganache/whipped cream? or will it start crumbling? I was wondering if I can make a bounty cake.

  27. sarita

    HI, am one of the relatively new follower and admirer of yours. thanks. when we say coconut milk and fresh coconut ,can we take out milk from the same coconut and use the rest as coconut.?

  28. Aarthi

    @saritayes u can..but fresh coconut is better, since you have removed all oils from the coconut as milk

  29. Manisha Caleechurn

    @Aarthi yes it works in pressure cooker

  30. Sat Priya

    Hi.. I am Sathya. I m coming out refined flour these days. can i use whole wheat flour instead of maida
