Lemon Coconut Loaf Cake

The Cake Slice Bakers August Reveal:

Lemon Coconut Loaf Cake | From My Sweet Heart

The Cake Slice Bakers are a group of women who share the love of baking cakes!  We are currently baking from The Southern Cake Book.  Laura from Baking in Pajamas is our fantabulous leader and Anabel from Oven Delights gives us four great choices to choose from each month.  Thank you ladies for all that you do for our group!

I chose the Lemon Coconut Loaf because lemon and coconut are two of my favorite baking ingredients.  However, I found this cake underwhelming in either of those flavors.  A nice texture, but I would suggest adding either lemon or coconut extracts to the cake for a more pronounced flavor.  The recipe can be found at Southern Living.

While we try to promote the cookbooks we bake from, there’s no point in purchasing this one since the recipes have been published by Southern Living on their site.

Check out what choices my fellow bakers made this month!
