This delicious coconut/lemon cake with butter/lemon frosting was my morning activity yesterday.
Let me tell you, It is to die for...
How to make it:
For the cake you will need:
- 1 dl water
- 3 lemons
- 2 eggs
- 2 dl sugar
- 2 tea spoons of baking powder
- 2 dl flour
- 1 dl sugar
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 tea spoons vanilla powder
- 75 grams of butter
- 4 tea spoons of fresh lemon juice
... so here we go: preheat the owen to 175 degrees Celsius and start putting some butter into a baking pan or mould. Mix the egg yolks with the sugar in a bowl and add the water. Grate the skin from two lemons and add it to the batter (smeten). Stir the juice from the same two lemons into the mixture, add the flour and the baking powder and mix it all together. Pour the batter into the mould and let it get a nice colour in the owen for 30 min.
For the frosting, heat the butter up in a saucepan and then mix the sugar, vanilla powder, egg yolks and lemon juice at once in the pan. When the cake is finished and a little chilled, pour all the buttery frosting on top of it and let it chill for a while and then add coconut flakes generously over it and garnish with some freshly cut lemon bits. Serve it cold, as it is or with some vanilla kesella on top.
V e r y seductive ... and so simple.
