Ellie's delicious lemon & Coconut cake
If you are anything like us working from home can increase that temptation to snack more. We love endless amounts of coffee and biscuits and cake just as much as the next Feel Fitter out there.
With more time on our hands it means we can spend more time baking our own snacks though right.. every cloud!
This delicious lemon and coconut cake is just the treat and what’s more is, it is totally vegan friendly – for more recipes like this you can head to www.feelfituk.com and download the full recipe books.
Makes 12 – prep time 30 mins – cook 45 mins
Heat the oven to 180°C (355° F).
Line a 1 kg / 2 lb tin with baking paper.
Whisk softened coconut oil and sugar together with an electric whisk. Add in the lemon zest, lemon juice and room temperature plant milk and mix well with a spatula. Next, add in the desiccated coconut.
In a small bowl, mix the flour with the baking powder and baking soda. Next, fold in the flour into the wet ingredients and mix well, then transfer the batter to the prepared baking tin.
Bake for about 45 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean and the top is nicely browned. Allow to cool completely before serving.
Once cool you can sprinkle the cake with some icing sugar (optional).
