How to Make Lime and Coconut Cake:


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Then grease a 9-inch springform pan and line it with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, combine eggs, zest, lime juice, buttermilk, and mashed bananas. Then whisk together until well combined. Set aside.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add banana mixture. Beat on low until combined.

In another bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda. Then add this to the banana/buttermilk mixture, whisking until well combined

With a large metal spoon, gently fold in coconut until just combined.

Spoon the batter into the prepared springform pan. Bake for 50 minutes or until golden and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then remove the springform sides before transferring the cake to a wire rack to cool completely.

Meanwhile, in a pan over medium heat, toast the remaining cup of shredded coconut. Stir constantly until golden in color. Then remove from the heat.


Using an electric mixer, in a bowl combine the cream cheese and powdered sugar. Beat until smooth.

Spread over the cake. Then sprinkle with the toasted coconut before slicing and serving.
