Coconut cake with lemon sour cream icing
 
Ingredients (serves 8)
  • 125g butter, softened
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 large lemon, rind finely grated
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • Lemon sour cream icing
  • 1 1/2 cups icing sugar mixture
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 lemon, rind finely grated
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Grease a 6cm deep, 9cm x 19cm (base) loaf pan. Line base and sides with baking paper, allowing a 2cm overhang at both long ends.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter until light and fluffy. Add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until sugar is dissolved. Add lemon rind and half the egg. Beat well. Add remaining egg and beat until well combined.
  3. Using a large metal spoon, gently stir flour, milk and coconut into butter mixture (do not over-mix). Spoon mixture into prepared loaf pan. Smooth surface. Bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow cake to cool for 10 minutes in pan. Lift onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Make lemon icing: Sift icing sugar into a bowl. Add sour cream and lemon rind. Stir until well combined. Pour icing over cake. Allow to set. Serve.
