This is a riff on my classic lemon loaf. I swapped the lemon for lime and added coconut to the batter, as well as a lime icing. This makes four small loaves or two standard sized loaves.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
zest from 1 lime
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 tsp. coconut extract
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each.
Add lime zest. Add dry ingredients to butter alternately with milk. Add coconut.
Pour into 1 large or two small baking pans. Bake at 350F for 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Wait 10 minutes and remove the loaves from the pans. Cool completely.
juice of 1 lime
1/4 cup icing sugar
Mix to combine. Spread over cooled loaves.
I love the idea that you used lime and coconut! I haven’t eaten either of those things in such a long time, you got me cravin’ it!!
