  5. In a bowl, put the butter (chopped into pieces) and the 1 cup of sugar and beat until it becomes very creamy.
  6. While beating, seperate the egg yolks from the whites and add the egg yolks one by one to the cream.
  7. Gradually and alternately, add the caramel, grated coconut, flour and baking powder and beat until everything is well mixed.

  9. Preheat oven to 165ºC and bake for 1 hour.

For the topping:

  1. Put the condensed milk and coffee in a bowl and beat at full speed for 2 minutes.
