Vegan + Gluten-free + Nut-free + Refined-Sugar Free
Each delightful bite of this Blueberry Lemon Snack Cake is bursting with fresh berries, lemon & sweet coconut.
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. Although if you love lemon and a little icing, check out my friend Chrystal’s Gluten-free Lemon Cupcakes. They are also dairy and nut-free.
