You know that feeling when you really did something right? To the point that you tell anyone who will listen about your accomplishment? Well, this is how I feel about this coconut and lemon cake. I used a little bit of everything I know and it came out to perfection. I have to post this recipe for you because it honestly is, that good!
Recipe: Coconut x Lemon cake batter
250g self raising flour
250g caster sugar
250g eggs/ approx. 5 eggs
Cream the butter and sugar until the colour gets lighter and looks creamy and fluffy.
Then add one egg at a time.
Finally add the flour (sifting the flour is optional). Then add 1 teaspoon of coconut essence.
Put the batter into a non-stick round cake tin, spray the bottom and sides with non-stick spray if you can.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C, with fan and allow to cook for minimum 20minutes and then check every 5 minutes with a cake tester.
Take out of the oven when it’s done and allow to cool.
