DGs Lemon Coconut syrup cake

One more post before I forget! Thee amazingly delicious lemon cake from this book........

350 g plain flour
3/4 c sugar
Pinch of salt
100 g coconut
3 t baking powder
200 g butter
Zest and juice of two lemons
2 eggs, lightly beaten
200-300 ml milk

1/4 c sugar
Juice of 2 lemons

Grease and line the base of a loose-bottom 20 cm cake tin. (I used my ring cake and it turned out awesome)
Combine the flour, sugar, salt, coconut and baking powder in food processor.  When the butter is rubbed in, make a well in the centre and add the zest, lemon juice and eggs.  Gradually mix in the milk til you have a soft dropping consistency.
Pour into prepared tin and bake at 180c for 40-50 minutes or until cake is risen and springy and a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.
For the syrup, combine the sugar and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Heat gently to dissolve sugar. Drizzle syrup over warm cake. Remove from tin and cool on rack.  
Serve dusted with icing sugar, or split, fill and ice with passionfruit and lemon frosting<<<Ooh Yum! Must try!
