If you’re interested in baking with coconut milk this luscious Coconut Milk Chocolate Cake is certainly worth a look.

Thanks to the coconut milk, there are subtle hints of sweet coconut in the chocolate cake and ganache.

The coconut enhances the chocolate flavours and in a way that’s all very subtle. It doesn’t overwhelm the other flavors in the way that desiccated coconut can sometimes do in cakes.

The ganache is fabulous, made simply with coconut milk and dark chocolate.

A lovely alternative to plain chocolate cake.
