    This cake is delicious! Only problem is that I can't stop eating it! I made a lemon glaze from lemon juice and icing sugar and brushed that over the top when it was still warm. Thank you for the recipe.

    Yummy yum yum!

    i reduced the sugar by almost half and I didn't quite have enough desiccated coconut so I topped up the amount with chia seeds. I did find I needed to cook it an extra 10 minutes as the middle was very undercooked.

    Great conversion.  I made a few tweaks here: http://www.recipecommunity.com.au/baking-sweet-recipes/gluten-free-lemon-and-coconut-cake/333456

    I made it less sweet, used honey instead of sugar, gluten free and with more flour, added some bicarb soda and  lemon juice.  Please check it out.   Glasses
