Simple ingredients yet simply delicious


In full disclosure, I absolutely love this Blueberry Lemon Snack Cake.  I love how each ingredient shines through on its own and I love how simple & unpretentious it is.

No layers, no frosting, no ganache, no sprinkles…. just fresh blueberries + tart lemon + chewy coconut to delight your taste buds.

Blueberry Lemon Snack Cake is a rebel

Blueberry Lemon Snack Cake follows its own rules.  It doesn’t conform to the way we think of traditional cakes and may leave you questioning if it is indeed a cake.    If you think about it, it’s a cake you can eat with your fingers while leaning over the counter, talking to your girlfriends.  You can throw it in a lunchbox without being judged that you put “cake” in your kids lunch and you can eat a slice of it for breakfast with your coffee or tea.  “Pinky up” anyone?

I like rebel cake 😉 .

No Icing Needed

I also like that you don’t need to pile on the icing, because this snack cake is fabulous on its own. A little touch of toasted coconut + a sprinkling of decorators sugar (if desired) is all you’ll need to bring a smile to your mouth.

    What a delightful cake Nicole! I’m actually struggling with a recipe right now using just maple syrup. But your recipe looks spot on!

      It can be hard to use maple syrup instead of sugar. Typically I have to lower the liquid by 1/4 and then add as I go until I figure it out. But well worth it playing with it. I can’t wait to see your recipe, I’m sure it’ll be fabulous as always.

    This looks like such a delicious way to use up the last of the summer blueberries!

      Absolutely! And when blueberries are out of season, that’s when I bring out my frozen berries.

      I love having options for breakfast! I love these, because my oldest can take 1 and run out the door (he never sits to have breakfast anymore).
