    I think your recipes are amazing and I always want to try some of them, however, I don't have a scale so it's really hard for me to measure out the quantities correctly, I usually use cups as it's much easier – so please can you convert the measurements into cups? I really wanna make this cake! Also, I don't have coconut milk, what would be a suitable substitute?

  2. Michelle Tham says:

    Hi Jemma! I'm new to baking so I just wanted to ask if I need an electric mixer to combine the ingredients, or is it okay to do it by hand too?

  3. Georgie says:

    Easily my new favourite channel on YouTube! Delicious looking cakes and a fabulously tattooed baker.

  4. Kelly Slater says:

    Hi jemma could this recipe be used for a layer cake? wanting to turn it into a triple layer sponge. any tips would be fab! thanks xx

  5. Liv Grout-Smith says:

    Does this recipe still work in a normal 8-inch round cake tin? How long would it take to cook if so? thank you xx

  6. Nadiah Akhtar says:

    Can I skip the desiccated (?) unsweetened coconut because I've never seen it in my grocery store 🙂

  7. Anastasia K says:

    Just tried the first slice of the loaf. It's really delicious! Very summery!

  8. Colton says:

    Jemma help! I tried making this, but switched it to the appropriate amount of shortening rather than butter (anaphylactic shock to dairy) and my centre caved in? I did the appropriate conversion to equal 200g unsalted butter but maybe there's more to it? Could my old ghetto oven not regular temperature enough and the temperature fell below 175°c? Thanks!
