Heat the oven to 180 C convection.
Melt the butter in a pot, add the cream and set it aside. Whisk the eggs and sugar until lightly and fluffy. Mix the flour, vanilla sugar and baking powder together in a bowl and whisk it into the batter, alternating with the butter/cream mixture. Pour the batter into a cake form (my form is 26 × 40 cm) that’s lined with baking paper and bake the cake for 18 minutes.
While the cake is in the oven, make the coconut topping by melting butter in a pot. Add the desiccated coconut, brown sugar and whole milk and stir well until even. Let it bubble a little over a medium heat as you stir.
Heat the oven to 200 C.
Spread the coconut topping over the cake and bake for another 12-14 minutes, until the topping is crispy. Take the cake out and let it cool before tucking into it. Enjoy!
