Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt (may sub sour cream)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • zest of 2 limes
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • Glaze

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 teaspoons coconut extract
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons heavy cream, or half and half, or other milk
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9×4 inch loaf pan with wax paper or nonstick foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl cream together sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add greek yogurt (or sour cream), eggs, vanilla, lime zest, and lime juice and blend until smooth. In a medium bowl whisk together flour and baking soda. 
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until smooth. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 60-80 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow cake to cool completely on a wire rack.
  • When cake has cooled completely, prepare the glaze. Use a hand mixer to mix together powdered sugar, lime juice, coconut extract, and heavy cream (or half and half or milk) until smooth and pourable. 
  • Pour glaze over the cooled cake, using a rubber spatula to spread the glaze evenly. Sprinkle with shredded coconut if desired. Allow to cool completely before slicing. Store in airtight container.
