Home Made Lemon and Coconut Cake

The most perfect tea cake – as it is light, fruity and delicious.  I particularly love this cake as it freezes really well, so make a double or triple batch and put some cakes away for the future.  That way if you have visitors, or just want a lovely fresh piece of cake, just pop it on the bench for 10 minutes and it will be perfect.

We have included the recipe for lemon icing, but you can just serve the slices with some butter!

  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Zest


Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

  2. Line a loaf tin or 18cm round tin with canola spray or baking paper and set aside.

To freeze:

Once the cake is cooled, double wrap in plastic wrap, label, and place on in the freezer for up to a month.
