1 cupbutter
1 cupyellow, plain corn flour
1/2 cupcorn starch (Maizena, Argo, etc.)
1/2 cupwheat flour
1/2 cupsugar
2 teaspoonsbaking powder
1 teaspoonfennel, cinnamon, dried cloves (all powdered and mixed)
11/2 cupcoconut milk
dash of salt


Beat thoroughly together the butter, sugar and salt and then add the eggs, one at a time.

Sift all dry ingredients and add them to the creamy batter gently, alternating with milk.

Pour batter in a small, round cake pan (greased and dusted with wheat flour). Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 °C for 40 minutes or until golden brown.

Unmold, let it cool down, then dust cake top with extra refined sugar.

Note: If you prefer the corn flour "mix", you should not add salt because it already contains salt.
