Baking was my first love in the culinary world and I find any excuse to make a cake. This cake is super moist with a subtle citrus flavor and soft decadent texture. You can serve it as a dessert or as a treat through the day. I like it warm out of the oven with thick double cream and blueberries.

The Cake

125g butter, softened
200g (1 cup) caster sugar
3 eggs
Zest of 1 lime, very finely grated
Juice of 2 limes
1 ½ cups SR Flour, sifted
200g (3/4 cup) sour cream
2/3 cup coconut flakes

The Syrup

1/3 cup water
150gms (3/4 cup) sugar

To Serve

Thick double cream
1 punnet of fresh blueberries

1. Preheat oven to 180`C.
2. Grease a 20cm round baking tin and line the base with baking paper (preferably a spring form tin).
3. Put the butter and caster sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until pale.
4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating well between each addition.
5. Add the lime juice and zest and mix well.

7. Stir in the sour cream.

8. Spoon into the prepared tin. Bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
9. Meanwhile place the water and sugar in a small saucepan and cook over low-medium heat until the sugar has dissolved. Increase the heat and simmer for 3 minutes.

10. As soon as the cake is removed from the oven, pierce it 10-12 times with a fine skewer and pour the hot syrup over the top.

11. Allow the cake to cool in the tin and then run a knife around the edge to loosen the cake from the tin. Remove to a serving plate and serve with cream and berries on the side.

      Wonderful! REALLY yummy. The glaze sets a little hard so there is a crunch on the outside — soooo good.
