Easy Lemon and Coconut Cake

24 Jul


My grandparents have a fantastic Lemon tree that bears plentiful fruit. I am forever going over to their place to visit and pick myself a few lemons to use to for my baking. There are SO many things you can make out of lemons and this is just one of my many recipes. This cake is so easy to make and a great change from intensely sweet cake varieties.

What you will need:
250g Butter
1 Cup Caster Sugar
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
1 Cup Coconut
1 Cup SR Flour (Sifted)
4 Eggs
1/4 cup Lemon Juice
2 Tablespoons finely grated lemon zest
Extra coconut

What to do:
Preheat the oven to 180┬║C and line a grease a cake tin
In a saucepan melt the butter
Add the sugar and vanilla and mix until combined
Sift in the flour
Add the eggs one at a time stiring in between
Add the coconut lemon juice and zest.
Stir until combined.
Pour into th pre-prepared tray
Dust with extra coconut
Bake for around 30 minutes or until skewer comes out clean

This cake freezes well for up to a fornight and tastes best un-iced in my opinion.
