Vegetarian Lime and Coconut Cake Recipe by Nadine Lloyd


(Makes 1 Loaf)

  • 2 cups self-raising flour

  • ⅔ cup coconut – shredded

  • Zest from ½ lime

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt flacks

  • ¾ cup unsalted butter – melted

  • ½ cup rice malt syrup

  • ½ cup pure maple syrup

  • 1¼ cups coconut milk

  • 3 eggs


Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F)

Line a medium-sized loaf tin with baking paper.

Set aside.

Add the coconut and salt to a small bowl.

Sift in the flour.

Set aside.

In a separate bowl, lightly whisk the butter, both syrups, coconut milk, half the lime zest, and the eggs together until thoroughly incorporated.

Using a spatula, fold in the coconut/flour mixture until just mixed through.

Evenly pour the mixture into the lined baking tin.

Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until lightly golden brown and cook through.

Remove the cake from the loaf tin.

Allow to cool on a wire rack.

Garnish with the remaining lime zest.
