Lemon and Coconut Cake


This recipe I got from Best Recipes. A quick and easy cake mixed in a food processor. How easier can it be.

Lemon & Coconut Cake

Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 6 large muffin size


  • 1 medium sized lemon lemon, rind finely grated
  • 1/2 juice of half a lemon
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups self raising flour
  • 125 grams butter, room temperature


  • Preheat oven to 180 C. Line a 20cm round cake tin. Using a food processor with processing blade, add butter, sugar, rind and eggs to bowl. Process until just combined. Add coconut, flour and milk and process for approximately 5 seconds until just combined. Do not OVERMIX .
  • Place in prepared tin and bake for 40-50 minutes, checking at 40 minutes. Stand 5 minutes before gently turning out.
  • Drizzle with lemon icing when cooled.
  • As these were baked in a large 6 muffin tin. Please check your baking time as these will cook a lot quicker.


It is important to stick to the processing time as over mixing will result in a heavy cake.
I used a large muffin tin to cook these in instead of a fluted cake tin.
Cooking time or these cakes was 20 minutes, once a skewer inserted into it came out clean.
