Pineapple and coconut base with tangy mango lemon frosting. This tropical lemon cake is perfect for a summers day. It’s no bake so very easy and quick to make. Just blend the base and topping then layer in a tin.
I use two lemons as I like it quite zesty, if you don’t like it as lemony just use one lemon. Also if your lemons are un-waxed / untreated it really balances out the flavour to add the zest of one lemon to the topping. The bitter zest mixes with the sweet and sour to give a fuller flavour.
