Lemon Coconut Loaf


One thing I remember having in my lunch box at school was Madeira Cake! If you can relate and you know what I’m talking about you will love this recipe. A great idea to make this up for the week as an easy snack to take to school or work… think lemon and coconut flavours paired together in a fluffy and moist cake! I like to eat a piece on it’s own but it would be also delicous with some honey or butter on it, or maybe even toasted and warm, yum!

You will neeD:
  • 1/2 almond meal
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  2. Combine dry ingredients except coconut flakes into a mixing bowl.
  3. Crack eggs into a separate bowl and whisk together with a fork.
  4. Add remaining wet ingredients to the eggs and mix to combine.
  5. Add your wet mixture to the dry mixture and gently mix together.
  6. Fold in shredded coconut.
  7. Pour mixture into a lined baking tin and bake in preheated oven for 40 mins.
  8. Poke a knife into the centre of the loaf after 40 mins and if the knife comes out clean, it’s ready!
  9. Cool before cutting and store in an airtight container.
