Blueberry Coconut Cake with Lime Sauce

Jump to recipe

This cake is one of my husbands favorite,  to be honest, one thing that keeps me baking these type of cakes is mostly him! He doesn’t really enjoy icing (buttercream or anything thick covering his desserts!) and I could try to convince him but there is no success. I don’t enjoy eating frosting either, but I love decorating and practicing with buttercream that no one in this house will eat.

For my dear love I have to make yummy cakes like this, fruity, fresh, spongy, soft…every time he eats this cake he says “This is the BEST cake, forever!” and that makes me so happy 🙂 Definitely try this one out, it is very easy to put together.

Blueberry Coconut Cake with LIME Sauce, the original recipes all call for Lemon, but I am being true to myself, I do not enjoy lemon as much as I enjoy lime. Growing up in Venezuela, the names for these fruits are backward to us, plus, there is no lemon over there, we only had Limes (green ones!) so you can expect I will swap every recipe that has lemon, for lime. I feel limes has a more sharp flavor, fresher…and lemon just reminds me of Lysol (lol!! great job on the smells Lysol! you got them almost identical!)

This cake is way better eaten the same day it is made, something like almost straight out of the oven, warm and with warm glaze. If you store it in the fridge make sure it comes back to room temperature, specially if you don’t enjoy cold cakes. This seriously is like a huge pancake, when you see the ingredients and instructions you may agree with me. Look at the inside! Blueberries burst all over the place.

You could make this cake in a 9×13 inch square pan or in 1-9 inch pan. If you have a small family like mine and want dessert just for one day, feel free to half this recipe. I always make half a recipe in a 8×8 inch pan. In this post, I made it into two 4×2 inch round pans, they are tiny and will grow upwards. This will increase your baking time as the center will take longer to bake.
