Healthy Lime Coconut Cake

Cookies, cupcakes and cakes… Who hasn’t noticed my slight obsession with these? 😀 But then again, who doesn’t love desserts?! As long as they are “In love with health – proof”, there is nothing wrong with a little treat. Of course, always in moderation, but that goes for basically everything! A healthy lime coconut cake was long overdue on my baking to-do list. The freshness of the lime and the creaminess of the coconut… Hmmm, just perfect!

I succeeded in making a delicious, healthy and pretty looking version of this amazing cake. This baby will smile at you and makes you tummy smile too!

Healthy Lime Coconut Cake


What you’ll need:

For the cake –

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 100 ml unsweetened coconut milk
  • 200 ml water
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 150 g buckwheat flour
  • 50 g coconut flour
  • 50 g almond flour
  • 1 tbsp stevia
  • pinch of salt

For the glaze layer –

  • lime zest + juice
  • shredded coconut
  • 200 ml coconut cream
  • 1 tbsp honey


How to make it

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius. Beat the eggs together with the coconut milk, water and stevia in a large bowl.
  2. In another bowl, mix all the dry ingredients (buckwheat flour, coconut flour, almond flour, salt, baking powder, shredded coconut and lime zest). Add the dry mixture to the egg mixture and mix thoroughly. Add the coconut oil and mix until you have a smooth batter.
  3. Pour the batter into a cake tin and bake in the oven for about 50 minutes.
  4. For the glaze: mix the coconut cream, honey, lime zest and lime juice until smooth. When the cake has cooled down, cover the top of the cake with the glaze. At last, sprinkle some shredded coconut over it.
