    Delicious. It definitely doesn't taste like diet food. I used lemon instead of lime. I used erythritol instead of Xylitol because that's what I had so I added a couple extra tablespoons. I used shredded coconut in the batter but flaked coconut for the top. By the time the coconut was added on top the batter was sufficiently baked that I didn't think it would stick even though I tried to press it down into the batter so I melted a tablespoon of butter and poured that over the top of the flakes. That worked a charm. I would definitely make this again but I would add a little salt to the recipe. This is the first time I've ever eaten a baked good and thought it needed salt. I'm not a huge salt fan it's just the flavor seemed a tad flat.

        I freeze leftover slices and as a breakfast alternative, I lightly toast a slice in a pan on the stove, then spread with butter. Very tasty indeed.

          This is an excellent recipe. The cake is delicious. I used Erythritol instead of xylitol so it’s less sweet and I love it. I also used heavy cream instead of almond milk and it worked out beautifully.

            Thank you I wondered about using cream as I can’t use nut milk.

          Very moist loaf cake and just the right amount of sweetness. I used bottled lime juice instead of an actual lime, and I definitely didn't put enough lime in because it didn't taste like lime. I'd recommend using AT LEAST 3 tbsp of lime juice.
