Chocolate Coconut Cake / Eggless Chocolate Coconut Cake / Chocolate Cake with Lindt Dark!

Chocolate Coconut Cake
Early this month weather was too cold only 40 F or less but from this week weather is good and its Fall now here. The leaves turning golden yellow to orange red and in some plants i could able to see nice pink tinges. Its less colorful compared to Wisconsin but still looks pretty and pleasing. After a long time i turned on my oven this week and baked cakes and cookies for my family. Fall and winter are the right time to bake more, so that our house gets warm and also we could enjoy the yummy goodies at home.

For this month's Shh Secretly Cooking Challenge i was paired with Veena of Great secret of Life and she gave me Chocolate and Coconut as my secret ingredients. Both are my favorite ingredients and i couldn't prevent myself from baking. After a long thought i decided to bake a cake with the given ingredients. I already have baked a Vegan Muffins with this chocolate and coconut combo, Chocolate Coconut Muffins. This time baked a rich buttery and chocolatey cake. I slightly tweaked this recipe, also i used lindt 90% cocoa Dark Chocolate and the cake was so flavorful and mild sweet. The chocolate dominated more and there was no coconut flavor but I could taste the coconut in every bite. This chocolate coconut cake is perfect tea time or snack cake, the mild sweet and
rich chocolaty cake pairs well with a cup of coffee or milk.

Notes:
Here i used lindt dark, you can use any desired or your favorite dark chocolate.
If you want you can skip coconut and bake it as a plain chocolate cake also.
I cut cake when its hot, so it looks very moist but after cooling the cake texture was perfect and even the next day it tasted do yummy and flavorful.
6 inch cake pan would be fine for this recipe.
I used homemade condensed milk.
