80 grams of desiccated coconut
a teaspoon of fresh grated lime zest
200 ml of creamy coconut milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
I followed the instructions here , then sliced up some strawberries and sunk them into the cakes (I made three mini ones instead of one big one)
What you get is a light, flaky cake, not too sweet, which is how I like them! If you want to make them prettier, make a simple frosting and top with coconut shavings and a slice of strawberry. If you want it to be more like a traditional cake, just use white flour instead of wheat.
