    Any chance you could add something to the instructions? Where it says, "Add all remaining cake ingredients" could you please add the words, "...including the lemon sugar mixture"? I totally forgot, until pouring a very small amount of cake mixture into the tin! Thanks tmrc_emoticons.)

    Gorgeous! I didn't have the coconut milk or lime, so I substituted with normal "light and creamy" evap. milk, and lemon juice for the syrup. Was absolutely delicious!
