  • This cake does not require any additional flavoring. The coconut milk powder, provides great flavor.
  • This is a great recipe to prepare for guests, after dinner or at tea time.
  • Coconut Milk Powder is different from Desiccated Coconut. Desiccated Coconut Milk is made from the fresh grated flesh of the mature coconut fruit. The process involves Hot air blow drying the grated white coconut meat to reduce the moisture content  to less than 3%, the texture of desiccated coconut is slightly course.
  • Coconut Milk Powder however is not made from the flesh itself, but the coconut cream that is extracted from the flesh. The process involves ‘hot air spray drying’ the thick coconut cream into fine textured powder.  I suppose you could use desiccated coconut in this recipe but the texture might be different.
  • NESTLE CREAM is pure dairy sterilized cream. It contains 25 % milk fat. It is not sweet like condensed milk and it is not of a thin consistency like evaporated milk, It is also usually sold in smaller tins.  It is made by shelf sterilizing REAL Cream, and will spoil once opened. In some regions it is labelled “table cream” or “crema media”. You could substitute this with fresh whipping cream.
