Chocolate coconut cake doughnuts recipe by Tanya Gulati

These lovely chocolate coconut cake douhnuts have taken our love of coconut to an other level. They went down a treat on a cold Sunday afternoon spent at home, decluttering. They are lovely, light, moist and easy to make. I haven't put much sugar in the icing hence the colour of the icing is not as white as the original recipe. Next time I will add cocoa powder to the icing to have a more attractive colouring. I also used light brown demerara sugar which lends the cake complexity and depth with the warm caramel notes. However next time I will reduce the amount of sugar in the cake as the icing gives the cake extra sweet kick. While making these I had a chance to test new doughnut tin as well

Antalya - local food

We have been away for a week in Turkey. Spend the weekend in Antalya and I couldn't help but share the local food we had in two restaurants. 1st we had lunch in Sisci Ramazan, which is a very small local restaurant.
