Put the lime in the coconut, drink ’em both up…in this case you eat them both up.

Low Carb Lime Coconut Cake

I made this cake before with orange zest and lemon zest but today I had neither.  But I did have a fresh lime so I used the zest of the lime and the juice of the lime.  Wow it turned out great.  Hope you like it.

By the way it’s so easy to make, only six ingredients. 

*Remember to line your loaf pan with parchment paper, it makes for easy removal.

  1. Hi Marisa, I’m wondering if there is a user- friendly recipe calculator you recommend?

    I have some recipes I’d like to add in with ingredients that aren’t the norm – and I’d like to end up with the net carbs information.

    Thank you.
