Recipe's preparation

  1. 1: Preheat fan forced oven to 180˚C or 190˚C in a standard oven.  Line a 9 cm x19 cm loaf tin with baking paper.


    2: If butter is hard, place in the bowl and mix 10 seconds/Speed 5.  Mix honey gradually into butter at Speed 4.5 until combined and fluffy for about 30 seconds.


    3: Add lemon rind and one egg and combine for 10 Seconds/Speed 4.5.  Scrape down sides and add the second egg, mix Speed 4.5 till combined.


    4: Add flour, bicarb soda, coconut milk and dessicated coconut.  Mix for 10 Seconds/Speed 3.  Scrape down sides and mix on Speed 3, until just combined.  You can increase mixing speed if desired to 4.5.  Pour mix into cake tin and cook for 60 minutes.  Cool in tin for 10 minutes and then transfer to wire rack.


    **This recipe was originally adapted by mummyt from a recipe, Coconut Cake with Lemon Sour Cream Icing with some additional tweaking by me***


    Suggested variations include adding more desiccated coconut and a teaspoon of vanilla.  Also, sprinkling some lemon rind on top before baking could be nice.  tmrc_emoticons.-)

Thermomix Model

  • Appliance TM 5 image
    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
    For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.
    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!
