Gluten free coconut and lime traybake recipe


I do love a tray bake as you may have noticed. I also love coconut and I love to bake with it. One of my favourite flavour combinations in coconut and lime. It can instantly transport me away to somewhere far flung and tropical. If, like me, you have no chance of getting anywhere tropical soon. Enjoy a slice of this and a day dream or two.
