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.

    I just put this cake in the oven and am praying it tastes as good as the picture for our Christmas Eve dinner. The batter was very thick unlike other batters for cakes. The cake calls for juice of 1 lime but no where are there instructions to use it. Was wary of using the lime since it is acidic. I saw there was lime for glaze so maybe inserted twice?There is also no instruction on temperature for oven. I based it off other cake recipes and went with 350. We will see how this turns out so for now 1 star

      Hi Lori!

      My apologies about the missing instructions. What happened is that about a month ago the program that I used for these recipes (to plug them in) pulled their code from many sites – they went out of business – and now I keep finding so many of these instructions missing a line or two, or the entire recipe. I have hundreds of recipes saved on here and unfortunately I don’t know exactly which ones are missing what info.

      Thank you, though, for letting me know so that I can go and update the missing information for this bundt cake!

      If you have a second, please let me know how the cake turned out and if you liked it. It’s a delicious cake.

      Have a very Merry Christmas!!

    Hope your kids will get well soon. My kids are finally over colds but now I found out they are allergic to pollen (spring is here). One after another mommies have no time to rest..and you missed appt for spa? That’s serious. 😉 Beautiful bundt cake – I love coconut, very very much!

  5. Kristina says:

    oh no… sorry about the spa appointment! boo.

    I make lists too, writing them out on paper, typing them into my phone… however lately I go to pick up my phone to add something to a list, and I get distracted by something else. later I realize I never got to the list… *sigh*

    the sound of lime cake… Mmm… bookmarking this one!

  7. Jean (Lemons & Anchovies) says:

    I make tons of lists, too. In my case, I either forget to take them with me or lose them! Love this tropical bundt!!

  8. Laura Dembowski (@piesandplots) says:
