Blue Ribbon Recipe

Put the lime in the coconut and shake your tastebuds up! This cake reminds us of a cross between banana bread and a lime coconut cake. It's dense and moist with a delicious citrus lime flavor. Yum! The creamy frosting adds a nice tangy taste. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
