Finely grated rind and juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon rosewater (optional)

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition. Gently stir in coconut and flour until combined. Put mixture into base-lined and greased 8inch (20cm) round cake tin and bake at 160°c for 1 hour or until cooked.
