We start mixing ground almonds and grated coconut. In a bowl, beat the eggs together with the sugar until they blanch. Add the almond and coconut mixture and stir with a spatula. Finally, we incorporate the sifted flour and mix again with the spatula, carefully so that the dough is not lowered.

Grease the crown mold, pour the dough into it and bake it in a preheated oven at 180º for about 35 minutes. While we have it in the oven, we prepare the syrup. We put the syrup ingredients in a saucepan on the fire and we leave them a few minutes to reduce.

When the cake is baked, without unmolding it, we soak it with half the syrup. Then we unmold it and just soak it with the syrup, until we finish it. Finally, sprinkle some grated coconut on top.
