« SCROLL PHOTOS LEFT TO RIGHT »

Here's a delicious bright, and fresh lemon, lime, and coconut loaf cake topped with a smear of creamy mascarpone and lots of zesty lemon and lime zest.

This one is super easy to make and comes together very quickly in one bowl, which is always a win.

You can also serve the cake without the mascarpone topping. Consider serving it plain, dusted with icing sugar, or accompanied by a dollop of fresh cream.

Hope you enjoy this one and please let me know if you make it!  @gatherandfeast #gatherandfeast
