A zesty one bowl lemon and coconut tart, this recipe is great for weekend entertaining when you’re on the search for a quick and easy recipe that is no fuss and stress-free!
Who loves pies and tart? I’m a total sucker for lemon tarts! I love lemon curd tarts and baked lemon tarts, but I also love making a lemon tart that doesn’t take hours to make and isn’t overly technical!
I present…one bowl lemon coconut tart!
This tart is THE easiest tart to make, literally. It’s one bowl, one pie dish. BAMN. Two dishes to do. I am in LOVE!
This recipe originally appeared on THCK back in February 2017 when THCK was just a baby blog! I have been wanting to redo this recipe for the summer because it’s so light and fresh!
I made one critical error last time I posted this though – I didn’t let the tart set before I photographed it, cue mushy looking tart.
I promise you though, with adequate resting time, this tart cuts into the perfect little slices!
I am absolutely loving lemon recipes at the moment. We are getting weekly Imperfect Produce boxes and they always have the juiciest lemons! We’ve made lemon strawberry mojitos, lemon cheesecake, and this gorgeous fresh artichoke salad. I can’t get enough!
I just love the freshness of it. It’s getting me so excited for summertime!
Recipe Notes – Lemon Coconut Tart
The key to getting the perfect light and fluffy tart is beating the eggs for 5 minutes. 5 minutes might seem a bit extreme, but it’s worth it in the end. This tart is like a light, fluffy lemony cloud that you want to demolish within minutes.
The cream adds even more lightness to the dish. Paired with the zinginess (is that a word?) of the lemon, it’s a tropical dream. A quarter of a cup of lemon may seem like a lot, but trust me it’s not, in fact, I ended up adding slightly more zest to it, because I love the tartness of the….tart.
This recipe doesn’t really come with any other major baking instructions, aside from what is in the cooking notes. It is easy, fuss-free (heck yes one bowl) and super tasty!

One Bowl Lemon Coconut Tart
Light, fluffy, no fuss and absolutely delicious! This one-bowl lemon coconut tart is the perfect tart for a dinner party or if you just feel like a delicious dessert! I love how zingy and tart the flavour is of this dish is. Don't be fooled though, this tart is still super light and fluffy!
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup plain flour sifted
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup shredded/desiccated coconut note 1
- 4.4 oz butter melted, note 2
- 1 cup cream
- 1 tbsp lemon rind
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350F/180C
In a large bowl, beat the eggs for 5 minutes until light and fluffy and doubled in size (note 3)
- Add sifted plain flour and beat for 30 seconds.
- Add remaining ingredients, and beat until well combined.
Grease a 9"/28cm round quiche or tart dish with butter.
- Pour mixture into greased dish and place in oven (note 4)
- Cook for 50 minutes (note 5)
- Cool, and serve with cream and ice cream
Note 1 - desiccated coconut is easy to find in Australian supermarkets. In America, it's called shredded coconut.
Note 2 - melt butter in a small saucepan while you are beating the eggs. According to my mum, any large amount of butter is best melted in a saucepan to avoid messy microwaves!
Note 3 - Yep, 5 minutes. Do it.
Note 4 - As you can see in the photo, I used a glass quiche dish that measured 9inches/23cm. I thought it would overflow, but the tart doesn't actually rise that much and I was fine.
Note 5 - check after 45 minutes, tart should be lightly browned on the tops. If you are worried it will burn, cover with some aluminium foil to avoid over browning.
