Coconut Lime Cake – This Coconut Bundt Cake has a wonderful, sweet, rich coconut flavor that is complemented by a light hint of lime.
I always welcome the opportunity to make a Bundt cake. Better yet, a tropical Bundt cake. Especially when there is 2 feet of snow on the ground and the temperature won’t move past 30-degrees F.
This Coconut Lime Cake required Beach Boys blasting in the background, and me singing on top of my lungs and into the whisk, “Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty Mama…Keylargo, Montego, baby why don’t we go…!”. I hope I get that song stuck in your head because it has not left my head since last week. 😉
On another note, have we discussed how I’m crazy about making a To-Do List(s)? The only problem with that list is that sometimes (plenty of times) I fail to follow. I used to be really, really good about it, but these days I’m a hot mess. I even missed a Spa appointment! And I made a little (BIG) boo boo with this cake-post. I scheduled it, twice. One for my BundtAMonth group, and one for the Leftovers Club. My apologies to both – it will never happen again. Scouts honor. (I was never in Girl Scouts…can I still say Scouts Honor?)
I haven’t been able to get my act together in like, 2 months. I blame it all on winter. And the flu. No, not me. The kids. They are constantly sneezing, coughing, runny nosing (ha?), back to sneezing… For the love of sanity (and cake), please cold weather, go away!
The #BundtaMonth Event creators, Anuradha from Baker Street and Lora from Cake Duchess, asked us to create a tropical cake for this month because many of us are dealing with the winter blues… A little pick-me-up was in order.
So this cake – I made it with Cream of Coconut and a good amount of lime juice. Hardcore, I know. My house smelled like we were partying it up in the Bahamas.
This week I made it again because, one, it rocked, and two, I am going to share my Leftovers with the Leftovers Club. 🙂
While I figure out the whole mess I made – BundtaMonth … Leftovers Club – you should go ahead and enjoy a slice of this Coconut Lime Cake – a wonderful, sweet, rich coconut flavor that is complemented by a subtle hint of lime. You should eat it with a glass of milk. It goes really, really, realllly good with a glass of milk.
