Coconut Cake

Every now and then I get into baking/cooking mode. It had been a while since I baked a cake, so decided to make a simple coconut and cherry cake.

Here is the recipe
6oz butter
3/4 cup sugar (I have reduced this from 1 cup, because I don't like extra sweet cakes)
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
3 eggs (beaten)
1/2 cup dessicated cocunut
1/4 cup cherries chopped
1/2 tsp vanilla essense (opt)
3-4 tbsp milk

Cream the butter and sugar till pale and fluffy.
Graudually beat in the eggs + vanilla essense.
Fold in the sifted flour+bk pwder
Fold in the cocunut with teh cherries.
Add milk to get to dropping consistency
Bake at 350 for 1/2 hour our till a tooth pick comes out clean.
