Lime & Coconut Cake

Citrus and tropical flavours combine in this light & delicious Lime & Coconut Cake with a sticky, zesty glaze.


For the cake

1/2 cup lime juice (3-4 large juicy limes)
zest from 3 limes
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup coconut oil in liquid form (unrefined will add to the coconut flavour but refined will do)
1 & 3/4 cup cake flour (you can sub all purpose but the cake won’t be quite as light. If in the UK use sieved plain flour)
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 teaspoon salt
1.5 teaspoon baking powder (I love this one as it is aluminium free & works really well)
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup cane sugar (any other granulated sugar will work here)

For the icing

1/2 cup powdered / icing sugar. (I use this organic & vegan brand)
2 – 3 tablespoons lime juice
Zest of 1 lime to decorate




Stay Fancy! ;)
