Mix flax seeds with water and let it soak for 10 minutes.
In a large bowl mix all dry ingredients (flour, desiccated coconut, baking powder and coconut sugar).
Add coconut milk, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla extract and pre-soaked flax seeds and mix well with a whisk or hand mixer.
Divide the batter evenly into three baking trays with a diameter of 19 cm and bake for 25 minutes at 180°C. (If you only have one baking tray, you can bake cakes one after the other.)
Allow the cakes to cool on the cooling rack. You can cut off the edges and top of the cakes if it is rounded, as this will make the cake more beautiful and juicy.
