Notes about this recipe

    Made the cake and it was incredibly greasy, to the point where pressing on the cake oozed liquid fat. It feels like the 200g of butter to 180g of almond flour was a typo. I didn't even both trying to make the chocolate glaze once I saw how the cake had turned out. This was a very disappointing recipe, even more so because it was from an Ottolenghi cookbook.

    The cake is absolutely sublime. It's so moist and delicious and I envisage making this many more times in the future. I halved the recipe to great success. I haven't yet made the ganache for it as it's not cool enough but the cake is delicious without it.

    Amazing! So quick to make and so delicious. Made for a gluten-free friend, but all guests raved about it. Baked in a 23cm round springform pan instead of a loaf pan. Made the chocolate glaze as written but it never got to the golden syrup like consistency. Mine was more pudding like, nevertheless easy to work with and just enough to cover the top. While the cake itself was deliciously moist, coconutty and buttery, the glaze brought it to the next level. A definite keeper!

    A really delicious and easy cake to make. I didn't have time to make the chocolate so served it with a vino cotto and caramel sauce (Maggie Beer - jar). It would also be lovely with some coconut ice-cream.

    Imagine a dense, buttery cake that tastes exactly like a dream version of a coconut macaroon and you've captured this cake. Incredibly easy to make and incredibly delicious. My only snag on this cake was with the chocolate glaze. Mine seized up horribly. Probably my fault, though, as I was running all over the kitchen that day. Easy to fix, though, with a splash of cream.
