How to make Drømmekage - Dreamy Coconut cake

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 9 x 9 inch baking pan. Add 1 tablespoon flour to pan, shake flour around the pan to coat bottom and sides. Discard excess flour and set the pan aside.
  2. In a small saucepan heat butter and milk, over low heat until butter is melted. Set aside while you prep the dry ingredients.
  3. Sift together flour and baking powder and set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl add eggs and sugar, beat on high until the mixture is pale yellow and very thick. Add vanilla sugar and salt and beat until well incorporated.
  5. Add 1/2 of sifted flour mixture to eggs and, with a spatula, gently fold the flour until smooth.
  6. Add 1/2 of butter mixture to eggs and gently fold in.
  7. Add remaining flour and then butter, folding it into the eggs.
  8. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 18- 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into middle of cake comes out clean.
  9. While the cake is baking, prepare the topping. Add butter, brown sugar and milk to a saucepan. Melt while stirring occasionally.
  10. Bring to a boil and then add coconut, simmer for 1 minute longer. Remove pan from heat.
  11. As soon as the cake comes out of the oven, turn the oven temperature up to 200 degrees C.
  12. Add the filling to the top of the cake and smooth it out a little. Ensure you don’t load the cake with all of the topping all at one time.
  13. Place the cake back into oven and bake for another 10 minutes. Remove cake from oven and allow to cool on a baking rack
