This Lime and Coconut Moist Cake Made with Rice Flour is a truly moist cake. The batter for this cake is made with a mixture of rice flour, regular flour, and potato starch for a cake with the perfect density. Flavored with whole vanilla bean, this cake balances the sweet nutty flavor of coconut with the vibrant tang of lime, drizzled over the cake after baking as a syrup, allowing each to come through each bite of the cake beautifully.

When this recipe said moist, it really kept true to its word. This cake was extra moist and had the perfect density to it. You could taste just as much lime as you could coconut and making it with rice flour was an added bonus. I cannot wait to make this cake again; truly a 5 star recipe.
