Coconut Lime Loaf

Coconut and Lime Loaf

100g gluten-free flour
1 1/2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder
1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum
100g dairy-free margarine
100g caster sugar
25g desiccated coconut
1 lime, grated rind only
2 medium eggs
1 tablespoon dairy-free milk


1 tablespoon caster sugar
1/2 lime, juice only
Lime zest, grated

What to do
Heat your oven to 180 C / 350 F / Gas Mark 4.  Lightly oil the base of a medium-sized, round cake tin and line with greaseproof paper.

Place all the cake ingredients and beat together well, until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Spoon the mixture in to the prepared cake tin, smooth over the top and bake for about 40-45 minutes until a metal knife, inserted into the middle of the cake, comes out clean.

To make the topping, mix the sugar and lime juice together in a small bowl.

Turn out the cake onto a serving plate.

Drizzle the sugar and lime juice mixture over the top of the cake, and sprinkle with grated lime zest.
