Lemon and Coconut Cake

I had a lemon sitting all by itself and I figured why not add it to a cake! so heres a lovely fresh cake recipe for Spring, it only lasted 2 days and I think this was Jasmines favorite cake so far, she now says cake!

  • 4 oz of butter
  • 4 oz of flour
  • 4 oz of sugar
  • the juice of one lemon
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 oz of self raising flour
  • icing sugar for dusting
  1. cream the butter and the sugar I used my new mixer that I won on La Bella Cooks blog!
  2. then add the eggs, flour, coconut and lemon juice
  3. bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes
  4. then dust with icing sugar
Here's a slice for all of you lovely folks!

  46. Anything with lemon rocks in my book. Glad Jasmine approved. That made me smile.

    I made some appetizers to take to a family gathering for Easter and our little six year old niece liked them so much she told my sister-in-law, "Sam is a good cooker." I'll take that compliment any day.

  47. Yummy Rebecca. I would worry when Jasmine starts specifying coconut lemon cakes-you can't go back to ho ho's after she eats that!
