2 large eggs
1 zest of lime, minced
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 cup buttermilk

3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 call-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 cup shredded coconut
HOW TO MAKE LIME AND COCONUT CAKE
To make the cake
Step 1: Ready the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Apply cooking spray in a 9-inch springform pan. Add parchment paper and line it in the pan.
Step 3: Mix eggs, buttermilk, mashed bananas, zest, and lime juice in a medium bowl. Whisk until well-mixed.
Step 4: Add the butter and sugar in a large bowl. Beat using an electric mixer until it becomes fluffy.
Step 5: Transfer the banana mixture into the bowl with the butter and sugar. Beat at low speed until blended.
Step 6: Whisk baking soda and flour in a separate bowl. Whisk until blended then transfer the mixture into the buttermilk and banana mixture. Whisk again until all ingredients are incorporated.
Step 7: Add the coconut and mix using a metal spoon until well blended.
Step 8: Transfer the batter into the greased springform pan.
Step 9: Place inside the oven and bake for 50 minutes or until the color turns golden brown and once the inserted toothpick in the middle comes out clean.
Step 10: Remove from the oven and let it sit for 10 minutes at room temperature before moving to the wire rack to completely cool.
Step 11: Place a pan on the stove and turn the heat to medium. Add the rest of the shredded coconut and cook until toasted or golden. Remember to stir occasionally to prevent the coconuts from burning.
To make the icing
Step 1: Add powdered sugar and cream cheese in a medium bowl. Use an electric mixer to mix the ingredients. Mix until the texture becomes smooth and creamy.
Step 2: Spread the icing on top of the cake.
Step 3: Top with the toasted shredded coconut. Serve and enjoy!
