  • 270 ml coconut cream from a can
  • 2 eggs

  • Line and grease a 22cm bundt cake tin and preheat your oven to 180 deg C.
  • In a large bowl combine the flour, caster sugar and desiccated coconut. Stir to combine.
  • In a separate small bowl or jug whisk the coconut cream, eggs and vanilla. Add to the flour mixture and stir well. Fold through the freshly pitted cherries.
