Coconut & lime tea loaf


IMG_9642

Does anyone else love to put a bit of condensed milk on strawberries? I do! But then I’m always left with almost a full tin of condensed milk. Normally I use condensed milk to make a granola bar tray bake, but as I’d already made one this month, I was on the lookout for something else. I happened upon the Carnation website when looking up recipes using condensed milk. I chose to combine two Carnation recipes: coconut & lime cake and cream cheese frosting.  I enjoyed this cake – both its’ flavour and texture. I found the frosting tasty but was a little runny. I think I would chill it a bit to help make it more firm next time. You could use the recipe for lime icing that goes with the coconut & lime cake recipe. I just didn’t have enough limes to do this. I’ve included the recipe at the bottom of the post.

  1. Honestly! My mouth drooled just by watching the picture of that tea cake. And I have got this major craving to bake this cake. I will definitely try this, I am one of the known academic writers so I have to get done with my writing then I will spend some time in the kitchen making this heavenly-looking cake. The recipe is quite nice too. Thank you for sharing!
