Coconut & Lime Cakes

Makes 16 cakes

Gluten and dairy free. Made using the Nutri Snack Cake Maker

Ingredients

  • 150g coconut oil, warmed to liquid
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 2 limes (reserve 1 tsp of juice for topping)
  • 100ml coconut milk
  • 75g ground almonds
  • 1 large egg
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 150g self-raising gluten free flour
  • Coconut oil spray

Topping

  • Coconut milk (top of the can)
  • 1 lime, zested
  • Reserved lime juice

Instructions

  1. Scoop out 20g of the thick creamy part of the coconut milk and reserve this for the topping.
  2. Place all the ingredients listed (apart from the “topping” ones) into a bowl and mix using an electric hand mixer until well combined.
  3. Pre-heat the unit and then spray the plates and tray with coconut oil.
  4. Spoon batter into the cage until each section is half full. Close the lid and cook for 4-5 mins until springy and clean when a cocktail stick is inserted and removed.
  5. Remove and cool on a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  6. Mix the reserved juice into the reserved coconut cream.
  7. Turn the cooled cakes over so they have a crispy top and place a small dollop of the coconut cream on top of each cake and then sprinkle with a little lime zest.
