As you might know, my little man has a lot of food allergies/anaphylaxis so giving him treats can be hard.

Last week we had the day together and decided to do some baking.

I thought I’d share the recipe for anyone else who has food restrictions. The cake was delicious with a subtle lemon flavour and Mr 5 loved it as well as the rest of the family.

Ingredients:
2 Cups Gluten Free Self Raising Flour
2 Cups of Desiccated Coconut
1 and 1/2 Cups of Raw Sugar (processed into caster sugar)
1 Tin (440g) Coconut Milk
1 Lemon

Icing:
Half a Lemon Squeezed
Approx 3/4 Cup Icing Sugar
Approx 180g Nutalex Butter

Method:
1. Milled the Raw Sugar in my Bellini Thermo Cooker/Processor to get it to a castor sugar consistency

2. Then peel the lemon and chop or food process the rid into tiny pieces.

3. Mix all ingredients together – Sugar, Flour, Coconut, Coconut Milk and Lemon

4. Line and grease a spring form cake tin and smooth the mixture into it.

5. Bake for 45min at 180degrees C.

6. Mix the Icing Sugar ingredients together and place into a piping bag with a ‘flower’ attachment.

7. Once the cake as baked and cooled I piped the icing starting from the outside and going in circles right to the middle.

The cake is quite dense so you only need small pieces.
