    Lemon Coconut Tea Cake

    When I saw this cake being made on Food TV it reminded me of
    a Pineapple Teacake recipe I made many years ago.
    It is so simple anyone can do it.
    You don’t even have to use your electric beater just a wooden spoon.
    Simply it’s just a baked batter cake with a coconut icing topping.
    Only about 5 minutes prep.
    Give it a go.

    First heat your oven 170◦ and grease and line the bottom of a 23 cm cake pan.

    All these ingredients into a large bowl

    1 ½ cups flour sifted with
    1 ½ tsp baking powder
    Pinch salt
    1 cup castor sugar
    ½ cup coconut
    Zest 1 lemon
    2 large eggs
    1 cup milk
    125 gms unsalted butter melted

    Mix really well with your wooden spoon making sure it is well incorporated.

    Into the greased pan, give a quick drop on the bench, and into the oven for 35- 40 minutes.
    Test with skewer if it comes out clean its done.

    Cool in pan 5 mins and turn onto rack and let it cool completely.

    To ice
    1 ½ cup icing sugar
    1 cup coconut
    1 tsp lemon zest
    ½ cup lemon juice

    Mix and spread over the cake.
    Best when really fresh.
