- 10 inch (25.4cm) bundt/cake tin
- Mixing bowl
- Hand/Stand mixer
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
- Get your ingredients together, ensure that they are at room temperature. This helps the ingredients to get incorporated well when mixing the batter.

- Preheat oven to 170 degrees Celsius. Lightly grease your bundt/cake tin and dust it lightly with flour. Set aside.
- Put sugar, coconut and salt in a bowl. Sift flour and baking powder into the same bowl.
- Add essence and oil into the same bowl. Mix until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
- Add eggs one at a time, mixing until it’s well incorporated before adding the next one.
