  1. My Dad was the King in our kitchen. I remember on the weekends he would bake us either a chocolate or vanilla sponge. Unfortunately, when dear ol’ dad popped his clogs he took the recipe with him. When I saw this recipe I was tempted to try it for myself and see if it was the same as Dad’s. It is. It has now become a weekly treat – complete with chocolate frosting & coconut.
