This Lemon Coconut cake is fragrant and lemony. The lemon and coconut complement each other beautifully and the cake is moist and soft. Adding chia seeds will give the extra bite that will make you reach out for seconds. The recipe for this cake was actually adapted from my old post “Chocolate Orange Loaf Cake” but I’ve tweaked and adjusted recipe with dessicated coconut and lemon. So happy that this yummy cake came up perfect for our afternoon tea.
