These are so rich! You only need a bite...yet, you keep going back for more! Layer the toppings or mix them all together. However you top it, it is intensely full of deep, sweet flavors!

I made Lemon Curd yesterday. We ate out of spoons and mixed it in Homemade Yogurt, recipe soon, and today..I made this lovely cake! I made the cake in the microwave which was a first for me. It is one of the recipes I found last year while looking through old things. ~smile~ I cooked it lower because I was afraid I would over cook it and end up with a brick. Feel free to put in a cake pan and bake it in the oven. I only had a 9.5" pie plate to use in the microwave..so that is what I used. You may need to adjust times just a bit. I'll try another cake very soon and adjust times if needed. The cake did turn out moist and so delicious paired with the Lemon Curd and coconut. Enjoy!
Microwave Coconut Lemon Torte
1 cup unbleached all purpose flour...I used King Arthur
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup coconut oil...measure it solid
scant 1/2 cup buttermilk...(just a little under 1/2 cup)
Lemon Curd, homemade
1 cup heavy cream
2 to 3 Tablespoon confectioners sugar
Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt together. Add coconut oil eggs, and buttermilk. Mix on low until incorporated then mix on high 2 to three minutes.
Put wax or parchment, I used, in a microwave pie plate.
Spread batter in pan.
Cook on low 6 minutes.
Cook on medium 9 to 13 minutes or until done.
You will be able to put your finger on the top without it being wet.
Let cool a couple of minute and then take out of pie plate and cool on rack.
Once cool, slice cake in half horizontally.
Spread Lemon Curd on bottom layer, as much as you want.
Whip one cup heavy whipping cream with 2 to 3 Tablespoons confectioners sugar.
Place top layer on top of lemon curd.
Ice torte with whipped cream on top and sides, if desired.
Cover with coconut.

I wanted something to eat besides chocolate. We had our Dark Chocolate Coconut Bunny Butt cake for Easter...It was good! I still have some coconut left so I thought I would make a pie. It has been so long since I made this...I just about forgot how. ;D Grab a fork and help yourself....there is always plenty. If not, I can always make more. Enjoy! <3 and hugs!
