coconut milk

Strawberry Lime Cake

I was looking earlier this month for a lighter, “fruitier,” dessert to make for us when we got home from treating ourselves to a dinner out.  I am becoming more and more open to baking with coconut flour and using canned coconut milk in “frosting” recipes as I have found that the coconut flavor is very minimal, or my taste buds are changing and getting more used to it.  We didn’t end up having this dessert the night of our dinner out, one because I didn’t have the coconut milk chilling in the fridge, and two, because we wouldn’t have been able to eat it anyways, we were so full from dinner.  Anyhow, when I did end up making it we were both hooked and I knew this would be one that I would be making again in the future, especially with summer approaching and berries coming into season.  I would call this more of a “shortcake” versus lime cake, because I didn’t taste the lime in the cake, but it didn’t really matter, it is tasty :).
