Preheat oven to 160°C. In a large mixing bowl, sift the flour, and spices together and add the almond meal, sugar and shredded coconut. Mix the dry ingredients well.

In a small mixing bowl, lightly beat the eggs and then add the coconut milk, vanilla bean extract and coconut oil. Combine all  wet ingredients together.

Combine the wet ingredients with the dry, and mix well. Spoon the mixture into a lightly greased 26cm loaf tin that is lined with baking paper. Sprinkle evenly the top of the cake batter with the extra coconut and raw sugar. Lightly pressing it into the top of the raw batter.
