Description

Embrace the flavors of the tropics with this delicious Coconut and Lemon Cake. Made with coconut milk and a splash of rum, this Coconut and Lemon Cake feature balances these warmer flavors perfectly with the delicate citrusy flavor of fresh lemon zest. Ground almonds add a beautiful richness and density to this otherwise light cake. Spread the cake with plenty of icing and garnish with toasted coconut or almonds as you so desire before it hardens.
