  2. Looks great! I can not wait to try this out, my son will be very happy with this… the Ben 10 party – gave me quite a few ideas, thank you so much.. You have such nice ideas and a lot of patience too !

    I tried most of your recipes – and all of them are sooo good !
    keep up the good work .. yes, Nehal is really lucky !

  3. Hi Sailu,

    After greasing the tin, why do you have to line with parchment paper? Is there any significance to it? Can you please let me know. Thanks

    I use parchment/butter paper after greasing the baking pan to make the paper stick to it. Sometimes I grease the paper too, to make sure it releases from the baked dish once it’s done. Lining with parchment paper will ensure that the cake will not stick to the pan and can easily be removed from the pan.

  4. Is there no baking powder required for this recipe? Will it rise without it?

    I started looking at this website in the last month or so and since then am hooked to it, really wonderful homely recipes. Great Job.

    Please put more recipes for kids.

    There is no need for baking pwd and its a slice recipe which is more like a brownie.

  5. Hi, Is there a substitute for the marie biscuits. I can’t get them here. Thanks a bunch.

    You can use Glucose or Milk Bikis.

  6. Yummeee…can I have a slice too?? I think its similar to a brownie isn’t it?Chocolate and coconut sounds like a terrific combo. Simple and easy recipe!!

  7. wow…looks absolutely YUMMILICIOUS!!
    and the best part….its eggless!!
    :)

  8. Dear Ms Sailu,
    I tried this recipe last week.I used a flat oven baking bowl kinda thing instead of a tray or cake mold. I put it in the oven for 18- 20 mins as the fork did not come out smooth with out sticking. After 20 mins, it was tasting really good, baked and nice-but was like a brownie, flat and little hard like a biscuit.At 18 mins, i thought it was still not done. If i had a smaller but wider in breadth dish, would i have got something cake like like urs. It wasnt looking like a slice. It was looking like your peanut cookies or somehting. Please suggest what went wrong with the texture and slicing. Do we have to leave it for a couple mins after u take it from the oven before we slice it or should we slice it immediately when it is hot. it was kinda breaking when i tried to slice it.
    thanks.

    Josh, its gets baked within 15-16 mts. It might appear not done, but will harden on cooling. Bake for lesser time the next time you prepare it. Let it cool on a wire rack before slicing it. For me too, sometimes I have problem with texture where the slice appears crumbly. :)

  9. Hi, can i use a non stick flat pan for baking? thnx in advance.:-)

  10. and also drinking chocolate instead cocoa powder? actually i dont have cocoa powder at home today and i want to try this cake immediately….

  11. Sorry for the delay in my reply. If using drinking chocolate, reduce quantity of sugar in the recipe.

  12. The pan has to be at least 1″ deep.

  13. Looks yum receipe. want to try. I do not have dessicated coconut with me. Please tell me whether fresh coconut can be used instead of dessicated coconut? I guess then the quantity of butter should be lessened as fresh coconut releases oil during the course of baking. Please clarify.

  14. Hi Sailu,
    I was introduced to you by my brother who cooks from your blog!! Just a quick question, 1 cup = ? gms/ ml/ is it 250 gms ?? What measurements do you follow?
    Thanks, Divya
