Sounds delish.I love almond essence - never thought to add it to coconut though.I usually pop in some vanilla essence or if I want intense coconut flavour, add in some coconut essence as well.I just may have to give this a go.Thanks for posting.

Quick Mix Coconut Cake
Sift 1 cup each of self raising flour and dessicated coconut into a bowl. Stir through 2 tsp finely grated lemon rind (I use orange) and ½ cup castor sugar. Add ¾ cup milk. Mix to combine and pour into a greased and linedloaf tin. Bake at 180*C for 35-40mins or until firm. When cool, drizzle with pink glace icing, and dust with coconut to serve.

Well I see this has surfaced again 12mths later.I have just pulled one out the oven. O so yum. Lasts and stays moist for ages.Thought more would have tried it.I make it sometimes into little cup cakes as well. Its a winner.
