Lime is paired today with coconut creating another winning combination. We all know to put the lime in the coconut! It’s a delicious coconut lime sheet cake.
This is a variation on the white texas sheet cake with a more tropical flair. It’s a cake that you make from scratch by bring butter and water to a boil in a sauce pan. Then you mix in some flour, sugar, eggs, sour cream, almond extract, baking soda. The batter is then spread into a greased sheet pan to bake.
Since the cake is a sheet cake, it’s thin and only takes like 12 minutes to bake. Once the cake has cooled it’s gets coated with a frosting that had both coconut extract and lime juice in it followed with a sprinkling of toasted coconut.
The coconut just adds to the buttery flavor of the cake. The frosting is what gives you that nice tangy lime flavor. Then it all crunchy toasted coconut adds texture and even more coconut flavor.
This coconut sheet cake is really awesome and I ate more than my share when we had it here. Make it for your summer party. It makes plenty to feed a crowd!
