|Here's a piece of my Blueberry-Coconut Dream Cake. Too bad that you can't taste it through the computer!|
Now is the prime to take advantage of blueberries. If you love their awesome flavor as much as I do, then you got to try my cake. My Blueberry-Coconut Dream Cake has everything that you want with its moistness and delicate, fine-texture from its gently spiced nutmeg and lemon batter for hosting luscious, juicy berries and coconut in style.
For this recipe, I do something different and use some coconut flour in addition to the all-purpose flour for firing up more coconut flavor. However, if you don’t have coconut flour on hand simply take it out of the recipe and eliminate the water. Don’t add more flour to replace it and it will turn out beautifully for you.
As promised, you won’t need to cream any margarine or shortening. You will be using oil and basically mixing everything. The most work that you can expect to do is clean the blueberries, line up the ingredients, and stir, pour, pat, and top with more batter. Your hardest task is waiting for your oven timer to ring once those aromas start filtering through your home.
Another fabulous thing that you’ll find is that the berries won’t end up with a purple mess at the bottom of your cake pan when mixed in this fashion. Instead, you will rejoice at saving yourself the mess while it enhances the flavor and texture of this yummy cake.
What else is fantastic about this recipe is there is no need to frost it. Of course, you can always top it with your favorite icing, if desired.
I hope that the next time you shop for berries and are in the mood for cake that you’ll give my recipe a try. Honestly, you will be so glad that you did!
