- 2 limes

Zest some of the limes. Combine flour, baking powder and coconut flakes in a large bowl. Add lime zest and mix well.
Halve and juice remaining limes along with limes used for zest. Set aside lime juice.
Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F. Beat butter in a stand mixer until creamy. Add sugar and beat until well combined.

Gradually add dry ingredients and mix well.
Grease baking form and pour in batter. Tap bottom of baking form on counter to release air bubbles. Transfer to preheated oven and bake at 180°C/350°F for 40 – 50 min. until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
