BOOKISH BITES: Coconut and Lemon Cake


If you’re a baker and you haven’t visited Sally’s Baking Addiction then you probably haven’t lived (in culinary terms). It is a revelation, packed full of the most amazing recipes from three tier brownies to blueberry muffins. I’m not sure how I haven’t ballooned in size or given myself diabetes after discovering the website because my willpower is frankly non-existent when it comes to glorious sugary treats.

It was to the website I turned when looking for a potential birthday cake for my sister. This recipe includes two amazing flavours-lemon and coconut- which, if you ask me, should be married and never be separated. It also has a link to a make your own lemon curd recipe which was surprisingly not the stress-inducing hell I was expecting.

Admittedly, the presentation of mine was not as immaculate as the website. I have a tendency to slop things on and I had to swap the cream cheese frosting for buttercream because my supermarket despises me and doesn’t sell half the things I want. But, I have to say, this is honestly one of the, probably the, tastiest thing I have ever made. I would definitely make it again. This time for myself, so I don’t have to share it with my family!
