Coconut and Almond Cake

My friend Sue made the most amazing Blueberry, Lemon and Almond cake for another friends birthday recently, with cream cheese frosting. It was amazing.

I wanted to replicate it at home, but I didn't have all the ingredients, so we ended up making this recipe up loosely based on hers.

Will wasn't sure about it at first, but after a few bites it was a hit.

For the cake you will need:
4 cups almond flour
1 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2cup coconut oil
1/2 cup honey
4 large eggs
juice and rind of 2 lemons

For the frosting you will need:
1 cup fromage frais
1/2 cup raw cream
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup of raspberries

Mix all the cake ingredients together and bake in a greased, lined tin at 160c until an inserted skewer comes out clean (about 45 minutes).
Remove from the pan and allow to cool.
Mix up the frosting and spread over the cake.

I'll be honest, we didn't wait for it to cool. It was delicious warm, even if the frosting did melt a bit...
