For the dough:
- 125 g. butter
- 500 g yogurt
- 4 eggs
- 250 g sugar
- 500 g semolina
- 1 pack baking powder (10 g)
- 200 ml. water
- 100 g sugar
- juice from a lemon
- 5, 6 tablespoons coconut flakes and 2 tablespoons Malibu rum
Mix soft butter, even melted (put it in the microwave for a few seconds) with sugar and eggs, one at the time. Add yogurt and mix everything well.
Mix baking powder with the semolina and add it to yogurt cream. Add vanilla.
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C. with parchment paper lining a rectangular shape with a diameter of approx. 30 cm. long and 20 cm. width. Place dough in pan and bake about 30 minutes. Let the dough cool.
For the syrup, mix sugar in a saucepan with water, rum and lemon juice. Heat it for approx. 5 minutes and pour over cake while still hot!
Before serving, cut cake into cubes or small triangles and sprinkle on top the coconut flakes. Just delicious!
