This is another recipe from one of my brunches.  Coconut and lime are two of my favourite flavours and here they work so well together in a delicious cake.  The addition of ground almonds and desiccated coconut, keep the cake super moist.  I finished it off with a simple lime icing, lime zest and  coconut flakes.

Coconut Lime cake

Dry ingredients:

160 g flour (gluten free if necessary.  I recommend Provena)

60 g ground almonds

40 g desiccated coconut

100 g sugar

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp baking powder

 

Wet Ingredients:

1.5 dl plant based milk

0.5 dl plant based yoghurt

0.6 dl oil

1/2 tsp cider vinegar

zest of 2 limes

juice of a lime

 

150 g icing sugar

juice of 1 – 2 limes

zest of a lime and coconut flakes to decorate

 

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease and line a loaf tin (I used a 1.8 L loaf tin from Ikea).

In a large bowl lightly mix all the dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl, lightly whisk the wet ingredients before pouring onto the dry ingredients and mixing until well combined.

Pour into the loaf tin and bake in the oven for 30 -35 minutes or until and inserted skewer comes out clean.  Allow to cool completely.

Meanwhile make the icing.  Sift the icing sugar into a bowl and add a little lime juice bit by bit, until you have a smooth thick icing.  You may not need to use all the lime juice.  Smooth on top of the cake and decorate with lime zest and coconut flakes.
