DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 180°C.
  • Butter and line the base of a loaf tin with baking parchment.
  • Put 6 oz (175g) of the sugar in a bowl with the butter, flour, baking powder, eggs, and the zest of 2 limes.
  • Split the coconut milk in half and set one half aside for the topping.
  • Add most of the other half to the bowl and beat the mixture together until well blended. Add enough extra coconut milk to make a dropping consistency.
  • Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and level off the top. Bake for 40 mins, or until the cake is golden and firm to the touch.
  • Meanwhile make the topping: Tip the reserved half of coconut milk into a saucepan. Add 5 oz (150g) of sugar.
  • Bring to the boil and continue to boil for 5 minutes, or until syrupy and you can see the bottom of the pan when you stir. (For some reason this took me nearly 20 minutes!).
  • Stir in the lime juice and set aside.
  • With a pestle and mortat, crush the remaining sugar with the remaining lime zest, until you have a damp green paste. Set aside.
  • When the loaf is done, remove from the oven and pour the syrup over the top, a little at a time, waiting for the cake to absorb it before adding more (it will come up the sides of the tin in the end).
  • Leave cake until completely cold. Sprinkle the lime sugar over the top.
