- Preheat the oven to 180ºC or 350ºF.
- Beat the melted butter with the sugar, add the yolks, the flour, the coconut and the baking powder, and finally the egg whites (well beaten) and incorporate well.
- Pour the batter into a greased cake form and bake for 35 minutes.
- Once cooked, use a fork to prick all over the top of the cake.
- Heat the milk and sugar until the sugar melts and it becomes very hot (don't boil).
- Pour it over the the top of the cake slowly so it soaks in all the syrop.
