Citrus Coconut Cake

Made this delicious cake this morning. It's even better with a thick layer of cream cheese frosting on top...

Citrus Coconut Cake

125g softened butter
1 cup caster sugar
1 tbsp finely grated lemon rind
1 tbsp finely grated lime rind
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup self raising flour, sifted
3/4 cup dessicated coconut
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Cream butter and sugar. Add lemon and lime rind. Add eggs, one at a time, beating between each addition. Fold flour and coconut into the mixture, alternating with milk. Spoon into greased loaf pan and bake for 45 mins. Dust with icing sugar (or add cream cheese frosting as I did).
