Apart from being delicious AND healthy, this Coconut and Lime Pound Cake is zingy, moist and a breeze to make. Better still, it is gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free. Yes, seriously! While I’m not the one to take credit for it, I sure had trouble stopping at just one slice…
It’s no secret that I’m a little bit if a cookbook and food magazine hoarder. I buy them, flick through them but hardly ever actually cook from them. For me it’s more about the inspiration and the ideas than following a recipe to a tee…
There are, however, exceptions to this and Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar Cookbook is one of them. Why?
- It’s not a fancy recipe book – there are “no croquembouches”, but the food looks and tastes great.
- Most of the 108 recipes are fructose-free, many are gluten- and grain-free.
- The book also includes plenty of tips on good fats, sugar alternatives, buying organic produce and planning ahead. For a little more research-based reading you can also check out Sarah’s IQS Books
- To be honest there aren’t many recipes in the IQS Cookbook that I would fault. Take this Coconut and Lime Pound Cake for example. I tried to come up with my own adaptation and a few little twists but the original was good in its own right, thanks to The Spunky Coconut who provided this recipe for the publication.
- Sarah’s IQS Cookbook is what inspired me to publish my own Guilt Free Desserts Cookbook (out now!)
More cookbook news: Speaking of sharing and providing recipes for cookbooks, Sarah has kindly agreed to share one of her own sugar-free recipes in my very own Guilt Free Desserts cookbook, which is now available here – you can sign up here to receive a special launch offer plus my regular recipe and giveaway posts.
And the cake? Well, it was gone in half a sday – everyone wanted a slice. And then an extra one. It was moist, and delicious, and really guilt-free. I was a little surprised to learn a few people had overlooked or completely missed this recipe based on the comments on Sarah’s repost of my pic of the cake on Insta! Perhaps that’s why I thought I’d share my slight adaptation with full credits with you.
