Lime Coconut Cream Cake

25 May

Hello Everyone,

Here is another recipe from my Betty Crocker booklet I bought awhile back. It’s suppose to have Key lime juice, but in my state we don’t get them to often, plus they are more expensive.

Lime Coconut Cream Cake:

1 cup graham crackers crumbs

1/3 cup packed light brown sugar

3 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

3 cups all-purpose flour

2-1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

1-1/2 cups granulated sugar

4 large eggs, at room temperature

3/4 cup heavy cream

4 tsp. lime zest

1/4 cup lime juice

1 cup flaked coconut

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 tsp. lime zest

4-5 tsp. lime juice

2 tbsp. flaked coconut, toasted

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 12-cup bundt pan. In a small bowl, mix cracker crumbs, brown sugar, and 3 tbsp melted butter; set aside. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, beat, 3/4 cup butter and granulated sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. On low-speed, alternately beat in flour mixture and cream. Add 4 tsp lime zest and 1/4 cup lime juice; beat just blended. Stir in 1 cup coconut. Sprinkle half of cracker crumb mixture in bottom of pan. Spoon half of batter over mixture in pan; spread evenly. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture; top with remaining batter. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes. Remove from pan, and let cool completely before icing. In a small bowl, stir together the 1 cup powdered sugar 1/2 tsp. lime zest and 4-5 tsp. lime juice. Spoon glaze over top of cake, sprinkle with toasted coconut.

Please pray fo my husband’s family. Several of them were in the Joplin. MO. tornado. So far they are all doing ok, no word on their homes yet..

I am baking the mission cake this week. Its going to be a simple chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, and drizzled with chocolate syrup. I have been sick the last 2 days, it’s just my medication stuff. Can be so annoying at times, especially when I’m trying to get stuff done. I just need to keep praying that Jesus will heal me!!! 🙂

Until next time..

Amanda 🙂
