Kirstie Allsopp’s Lime and Coconut Cake

DessertServes 12

# Preheat the oven to 170°C, (150°C for fan ovens), Gas Mark 3. # Grease and base line a 900g (2lb) loaf tin with baking parchment. # Place all the cake ingredients into a large bowl and beat using an electric hand whisk until just smooth and pale. Pour into the prepared cake tin and bake for 55-65 minutes until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the cake. If the top becomes too brown near the end of the cooking time, cover with a piece of parchment. Leave the cake to cool slightly then remove from the tin and transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. # For the icing simply mix the lime juice into the icing sugar until you have a thick pouring consistency drizzle over the cake and finish with strands of lime zest.

In a pan, bring the rice to the boil with the water and then simmer for 20 minutes until the rice is cooked al dente.

Peel and chop finely the onion, red pepper and tomatoes. Crumble in the feta cheese, season and stir in the olive oil.
