When life throws you lemons …
… Make a cake!
Our lemon tree decided to be particularly fruitful this year and there is no chance we can use all the lemons before they go bad. So yes, I squeezed some and froze the juice but then some friends of ours, who have a lime tree, came and asked us to help them get rid of some of their limes …
So I made a lime-coconut cake for dessert on Shabbat.
Here’s the recipe:
- 3 eggs
- 1-2 tbs natural sweetener (1-2 ’cause each and his degree of sweetness …)
- 50 g coconut oil
- 100 g coconut flakes (you can grind them some more to get a more “uniform” texture)
- 100 g almond flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp psyllium
- a pinch of salt
- juice and grated rind of 2 limes
- Mix all the dry ingredients, including the lime rind, in a bowl.
- Mix the eggs, oil and juice together in another bowl. (If you use a liquid sweetener, add it here.)
- Add the dry ingredients to the batter and mix well.
- Pour into a greased, suitable sized, pan.
- Bake for about 30 minutes at 175 degrees.
Unfortunately, the cake was finished before I had time to photograph it … 😉
