How to Make:

  1. To make the cake: preheat oven to 180°C. Grease cake pan and line base with baking paper. Use an electric mixer to beat butter, sugar and lemon rind until pale and cream. Add the egg yolks, one at a time, beating well between each addition. Stir in coconut, sifted flour and buttermilk in 2 batches. Use an electric mixer to whisk egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until soft peaks form. Use a metal spoon to gently fold into cake mixture in 2 batches. Spoon mixture into prepared pan and smooth the surface. Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes or until skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  2. Meanwhile: to make the syrup, use a zester to remove rind from lemon. Juice the lemon. Combine sugar, water, lemon rind and juice in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until sugar dissolves. Cook, without stirring, for 3 minutes or until syrup thickens slightly. Reserve 1/4 cup (60ml) syrup. Pour remaining hot syrup over hot cake. Cool cake in pan
  3. Combine mango, pineapple and passionfruit with reserved syrup in a medium bowl. Serve with slices of cake and double cream.
