Coconut, date and coffee cake

I don't often post recipes these days, but I just couldn't resist this one. This is a simple, easy to mix cake that is perfect for when company is coming over, or when you just want to pop something in 3 the oven with minimal effort. And it's pretty nutritious, too!

1 cup dried unsweetened shredded coconut
3 large eggs, or 4 if you use medium-sized
3\4 cup honey, maple syrup or other desired sweetener
1\2 cup coconut oil
4 tbsp. date spread, or 1\2 cup crushed Medjoul dates
1 rounded tsp. instant coffee, dissolved in 3\4 cup warm water
Approx. 2 cups flour - the batter should be just short of being runny
1 tsp. baking powder

Mix everything thoroughly in a large bowl. Pour into baking tray and bake at medium heat for about 40 minutes. Let cool slightly before slicing.
