  5. To the remaining mixture in the saucepan add in the coconut yoghurt, eggs and finally baking soda. Mix together until well combined and smooth.
  6. Pour mixture over top of your crumb base in the cake tin and smoothen out to the edges.
  7. Before the cake goes in the oven, sprinkle the top of cake with shredded coconut and sliced almonds.
  8. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until cake has risen and springs back when touched or skewer comes out clean.
  9. Allow cake to cool completely in its tin before removing it.
  10. Dress with some more coconut shreds or lemon zest (optional).
  11. Don't forget to accompany slices of Coconut Love Cake with more dollops of smooth Raglan Coconut Yoghurt! Heaven.
