Ingredients and Measurements for Making the Perfect Cake

Before you start baking, ensure that you have gathered all the ingredients needed to make this mouth-watering bounty cake. You can adjust the measurements, depending on your needs or baking preference.

Dry Ingredients

  • Flour (1 1/4 cups or 200 g): Use regular all-purpose flour or wholemeal atta flour as a healthier option.
  • Cocoa Powder (3 heaping tablespoons or 21 g): If you want to enhance the chocolatey flavor of the cake, add extra cocoa powder.
  • Baking Powder (1 1/2 teaspoons or 7.5 g): The baking powder makes the cake fluffy and light.
  • Baking Soda (1/2 teaspoon or 2 g): It helps in the leavening process and makes the cake moist.
  • Salt (a pinch): A little amount of salt brings out the flavors of the other ingredients.

Wet Ingredients

  • Eggs (3 large eggs): These bind all the ingredients together and give structure to the cake.
  • Unsalted Butter (1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons or 135 g): Use softened butter for easy mixing with the other ingredients.
  • Caster Sugar (3/4 cup or 120 g): Use caster sugar instead of granulated sugar for a lighter texture.
  • Light Brown Sugar (1/2 cup or 100 g): It adds depth in flavor and color to the cake.
  • Vanilla Extract (1 teaspoon or 5 ml): It balances out all the flavors and adds a lovely aroma to the cake.
  • Fresh Coconut (1 young coconut or grated desiccated coconut – 50 g): The freshness of coconut adds a new level of taste and texture to the cake.

There are a few substitutions and variations you can try to make this Coconut Bounty Cake recipe even more exciting. Here are some ideas:

1. Vegan bounty cake: If you’re keeping a vegan lifestyle, no need to worry. You can remake this recipe by replacing the eggs with 300g of cottage cheese or 1 1/2 cups of unsweetened applesauce. Use vegan butter instead of regular butter or margarine.

2. Gluten-free bounty cake: You can replace the all-purpose flour with wholemeal atta flour (a type of Indian wheat flour), coconut flour or gluten-free flour.

3. Use dark chocolate: Some people don’t enjoy milk chocolate, or they prefer to add a bit more bitterness to the dessert. In this case, swap the creamy milk chocolate with dark chocolate.

4. More coconut: If you’re a real coconut lover, you could add more fresh coconut or shredded desiccated coconut on top of your cake.

5. Swap the sugar: If you are trying to reduce your sugar intake, you might want to consider using sugar substitute alternatives like honey, maple syrup, xylitol or stevia.

If you want to keep things simple, slice the cake into small pieces and serve it plain. The blend of chocolate and coconut flavors is enough to make every mouth water.

Bounty Cake also pairs perfectly with a glass of cold milk, especially if you’re serving it as a breakfast treat or snack. It can also be paired with other beverages such as tea, coffee, hot chocolate or even a glass of wine! A crisp Rosé or Malbec will bring out the richness of the chocolate in the cake.

For those looking for an even more decadent treat, try serving the cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. The combination of warm chocolate cake with the cool creaminess of the ice-cream is simply divine.

Finally, don’t forget about garnishing! A few fresh berries such as strawberries or raspberries can add some lovely color contrast and complement the richness of the chocolate flavor.

If you want to get a head start on preparing this luscious Bounty Cake, you’ll be happy to know that you can make the cake layers and coconut mousse ahead of time. You can bake the sponge layers up to 2 days in advance and store tightly wrapped in plastic wrap until needed.

To store the whole cake, simply cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days. This way, your cake will be ready whenever you are! In fact, you might even find that the flavors meld together even better the longer they sit in the fridge.

If you want to reheat your cake, we recommend bringing it up to room temperature for about an hour beforehand. Then, preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and wrap your Bounty Cake in aluminum foil. Pop it into the oven for around 10-15 minutes, or until heated through. Make sure to remove the foil during the last few minutes of heating if you want a crispy exterior.

Another great thing about this recipe is that it’s easy to freeze! You can put sliced portions into freezer bags or wrap up individual slices with plastic wrap to store in the freezer for up to 3 months. When reheating from frozen slices or portions, simply thaw them overnight in the refrigerator before baking as recommended above.

No matter how you choose to prepare and store your Bounty Cake, we’re sure you won’t be disappointed when it melts in your mouth with its simple yet tasty combination of coconut and chocolate!

Tips for Perfect Results

You won’t regret the time spent making this homemade cake from scratch.

When it comes to baking, there is no denying that it requires precision and some extra steps to get the desired end result. The Bounty cake recipe may seem simple, but with a few extra tips, you can give your cake an extra edge to make it truly delectable. Here are some essential tips for making a perfect Bounty cake.

Firstly, before starting with the recipe, make sure all your ingredients are at room temperature. Having your eggs and butter at room temperature helps them blend much better and leads to the desired texture of the cake.

Secondly, sift all your dry ingredients such as flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, and baking powder together at least twice. Sifting makes the ingredients lighter by trapping air between them aiding in fluffiness.

Thirdly, when creaming the sugar and butter together for the batter, ensure to beat them until they light and airy in texture. This process is crucial as it contributes to creating tiny air pockets resulting in a soft and tender crumb.

Fourthly, while adding in the dry ingredients alternately with coconut milk or buttermilk liquid mixture, make sure not to over-mix the batter. Overworking can lead to a dense cake and ruin its fluffy texture.

Fifthly, closely follow the baking time mentioned in the recipe as it’s often easy to under or over-bake the cake due to different ovens’ temperature variances.

Lastly, ensure proper cooling before you frost your mouth-watering cake! The cake should cool down entirely before being coated with luscious Bounty mousse or drizzled chocolate on top!

Follow these crucial yet straightforward tips for making a perfect bounty cake every time!

Bottom Line
