Yummy, moist, easy peasy. I used Bobs Red Mill baking mix for the flour, coconut oil, and extra thick coconut milk. Cut out half a cup of sugar. Added 2 tbsp of lemon juice at the end because it seemed to be too sweet. Baked in a torte pan so it took an extra 10 minutes or so. Popped it out and Shook some powdered sugar on top. It was a hit. Have made it twice now.

Very good! I did cook cake five mins less for ultra moistness. For the icing I used buttercream and added coconut extract. Yum!!

Great. Didn't have walnuts on hand but still good, like a moist sponge cake. Tasty with cooked apple & cinnamon!
