Lime, Coconut & Sour Cream Cakes

i looooooove baking! The only problem with baking & being a SAHM is the eating of the baking… Often! Lol.

So I try to make healthier alternatives of my Favourites.

For days I’ve been craving a lemon & sourcream cake but didn’t have any lemons. I do however have some fresh limes I was given last week to use up. I’ve also got some sour cream which we used for beef stroganoff & tacos for dinner this week but I didn’t want to waste the rest of the tub so it was perfect to use in this recipe.


💚lime & coconut sour cream muffins💚

1/2 tub light sour cream (150 grams)

50gms melted unsalted butter

1 teaspoon grated lime plus a good squeeze of fresh lime juice

1 tablespoon desicated coconut

1/4 cup honey

1 egg

1.5 cups wholemeal self raising flour (if you don’t have wholemeal use 1 cup of normal SR flour and blitz up 1/2 cup rolled oats to use as well)

Add all ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat for 1 minute with beaters.

Bake at 160* for 12-15 minutes

Makes 12 at 127 calories

💚sour cream & honey frosting💚

1/4 tub (75 grams) sour cream

2 tablespoons honey

mix together and dollop on top of cakes once fully cooled

29 calories per dollop

💚could also be made as a cake but I would use 1 extra egg

Such a yummy little treat for only 156 calories!!! Plus they’re budget friendly as most of these ingredients are in the fridge or pantry. And they’re a great way to use up leftover sour cream which we never seem to go through.
