Recipe's preparation

    Cake base
  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius. Grease a 20 cm cake tin and line with baking paper.


    Place 70g of coconut plus 200g of blanched almonds into TM bowl. Blitz for 10 secs on Speed 9. Set aside.


  2. Add 200g raw sugar and the majority of the lime zest into the TM bowl. Process for 20 seconds on Speed 9.

  8. Add the 45g of water to the TM bowl. Cook on 100 degrees for 2 minutes on Speed 4.

  • I made this today and it

    I made this today and it turned out beautifully.....just  a note that the recipe doesn't say when to add the lime juice; I added it with the eggs and it seemed to be fine. IAlso the blitzing of the sugar and lime zest didnt take long, only about 10 seconds, after that it was becoming quite moist......maybe because I reduced the sugar to 150 grams and used coconut sugar, we are not really sweet tooths but it was plenty sweet enough for us. A lovely way to use limes from our tree, it will become a standard....many thanks to Mixinit!...glentan
