What a nice, light treat for having on a summer day! Of course, these are great any time of the year. When I made this, I added some sliced bananas on top after the cake was baked and I enjoyed the additional taste it added to the lemon and coconut. It's a very simple and tasty dessert to whip up with just a few ingredients.

Do an Aussie baker a favour and let me know how much powdered (or icing sugar as we call it) is in a box. Thank you

16 ounces is typical of a box of powdered sugar. Hope that helps!

These sound so good! I can tell they will be moist and oh so lemony! I might not put in that much coconut, but I think they'll still turn out okay. These will be good for a spring luncheon.
