6. Bake for 45 minutes.
7. After removing from the oven, allow the cake to cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

1. Combine icing sugar and chai mixture together.
2. Add extra water to make a pouring consistency.
3. Pour over the cake and sprinkle with coconut.

*If using a can of coconut milk, be sure to give it a stir before adding to the mixture to ensure it hasn't separated.
^Use vegetable oil or cooking oil spray to grease to the tin just before adding the batter to ensure the oil doesn't settle at the bottom if using butter doesn't work for you.
