Today I want to share with you this delicious Coconut Lime Pound Cake. I'll admit I wasn't sure about this prior to making it. But after one bite I was smitten. The combination of coconut and lime is so light and refreshing and made for summer. Bring this to your next outdoor BBQ or pool party.

Coconut Lime Pound Cake

6 ounces butter, softened
1¼ cups Dixie Crystals sugar
3 large eggs
2½ cups flour 
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup no-sugar added coconut cream
2 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp water
1 tsp Adams vanilla

Pre-heat the oven to 350 and lightly grease a 10 cup capacity bundt pan with butter and flour

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter until light and creamy then slowly add the sugar, beating until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time. Scrape down the bowl after each one.

Whisk together flour and baking powder. In a separate bowl, stir the coconut cream, lime juice, water and vanilla together. Add half the flour to the butter mixture and mix. Then add half the coconut cream mixture. Repeat with the remaining ingredients, ending with cream mixture.

Bake for 50 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean. Leave to rest in the tin for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool.

For the Icing
1 cup Dixie Crystals powdered sugar
1-2 tbsp water 1/2 cup coconut cream
shredded rind from 1 lime
Mix all the ingredients together until they form a thin paste. Drizzle over the cooled cake.
