- Soften butter in a bowl. Beat in sugar until pale and creamy. Separate eggs and beat yolks into sugar mixture, one at a time. Fold in coconut and 2 tablespoons lemon rind. Sift over flour and baking powder. Fold into butter mixture with coconut cream. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Fold into cake mixture.
