This lemon and coconut cake looks quite grand when presented at the table. The meringue frosting gives it the appearance of a snowy mountain.

To make it healthier and just that extra bit more coconutty, I've swapped butter with coconut oil, and caster sugar for coconut sugar.

Preparation Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 8 servings

Ingredients
190g coconut oil
240g spelt flour
1 tsp baking powder
120g coconut sugar
1 tbsp golden syrup
2 tbsp Truvia sweetener (or 125g caster sugar)
200g caster sugar
150g desiccated coconut
tsp cream of tartar
5 lemons
8 eggs
