Coconut Lime Bundt Cake – #BundtaMonth

Post image for Coconut Lime Bundt Cake – #BundtaMonth

I am SO ready for winter to be over!!! I may have mentioned this recently. Seriously. I’m done. Tuesday the temperature was in the 50′s and the sun was brightly shining. We were walking through the neighborhood, going to the park with the girls and Murphy. Yesterday? 30′s-40′s. Cold, rain, snow. A wintry mess! I’m in serious need of  warmth and sun.

I’m clearly not getting that so the best I can do is bake bright, cheerful, warm weather foods and hope spring gets the hint and starts making its way here. This cake definitely fits that bill. Bright and fragrant lime with a ton of tropical coconut just exudes “remote sandy beach with a pina colada in hand” vibes. As I ate this cake, for those brief moments I was not in the middle of blustery March with its bipolar weather patterns. I was on an endless sandy beach without a care in the world. Ok, maybe not but a girl can dream.

This month for BundtaMonth we were given a tropical theme. I was thrilled because truly, I was all about making a cake that inspired thoughts of warmer climates. All the other ladies came up with some pretty incredible creations as well so go have a gander of the tropical treats that await you then grease up your bundt pan and bake a tropical cake all your own. We’d love to see it!

You’ll always have me at anything with coconut & lime – love the new Bundt pan. And even though Philly has had a pretty mild winter, I’m always ready for warmer days!

Kate March 9, 2013 at 8:55 pm

Thanks Deanna! That bundt pan along with the swirly one will be regular players in my kitchen. Now they make me want to see what other cool bundt pans I can find!

Alice @ Hip Foodie Mom March 7, 2013 at 10:35 am

Kate,
LOVE this bundt! I’ve been waiting for this recipe ever since I saw the sneak peek! And I absolutely LOVE your bundt pan. you must tell me where you got this! :) pleassseeee.
That last photo is just beautiful. LOVE it! I am seriously loving all the tropical bundts today. I too am in serious need of warmth and sun!!

Kate March 9, 2013 at 8:56 pm

Thank you so much Alice! I got the pan at Williams-Sonoma but you can probably find it elsewhere too. It’s a Nordic Ware Pro Cast Heritage Pan. Loving it! And the high quality has that cake sliding right out of there without a crumb left behind. And I’m so happy you like this bundt cake recipe too! It was so very good.

Reply

Holly March 7, 2013 at 10:37 am

What a gorgeous cake! You used the new pan so nicely and it looks like your cake jumped right out without leaving even a crumb left behind. Now that had to be a good feeling!

Reply

Kate March 9, 2013 at 8:57 pm

Oh it was a very good thing! This pan is amazing and so was the cake.

I’m done with the cold, dreary winter days, too. This cake looks wonderful. I now have the “Lime in the Coconut” song in my head.

Kate March 9, 2013 at 8:58 pm

You put the lime in the coconut… ;) Thanks you Jennie! Now I have the song stuck in my head too.

Renee March 7, 2013 at 2:44 pm

I can’t wait for winter to be over. I’m so tired of the cold and grey outside. I loved the theme this month. Your cake fits with it so well. Nice sweet/tart combo of tropical flavors. Your bundt pan is fabulous. It’s one I still need to get to add to my collection.

Kate March 9, 2013 at 8:58 pm

Thank you Renee! I loved this month’s theme too. It reminded me that warmer days are not far. Thank goodness!

I´m certainly pairing coconut with lime next time. Gorgeous cake in looks and I bet flavor! I think we should all go on a tropical vacation!

Kate March 9, 2013 at 8:59 pm

I agree! Count me in. Where are we off to and when do we leave?

Lime is probably my favorite citrus fruit. This cake looks so fresh and appealing.

Carrie @ poet in the pantry March 7, 2013 at 9:41 pm

I’m with you–I’m done with winter! Of course, we’re in the midst of a snow storm, but I’ve had enough. Limes are very uplifting when you need an escape. Love that new cake pan design!

Kate March 9, 2013 at 9:00 pm

Thanks Carrie! I definitely loved this month’s tropical theme. It helped deal with the cold weather by bringing warm thoughts and flavors.

Lora @cakeduchess March 7, 2013 at 10:27 pm

I have actually really enjoyed these recent cold snaps. Even the other day when it was in the 30′s. Since it’s always tropical here, it feels really good and is nice to bake in this weather:))Gorgeous bundt, Kate. love your new pan! Thank you for being a part of #BundtaMonth.

Reply

Kate March 9, 2013 at 9:02 pm

Well, if I lived in South Florida I bet I would love these cold snaps too. But oh, all I’m getting is cold for months and months ;) I’m SO over it. Loved this month’s theme! You took us all away from the cold of the North, even if for only a little while.

Emily {Jelly Toast} March 7, 2013 at 11:13 pm

This is gorgeous! I am with you all the way on the weather, and I’m even a cold weather fan. I just can’t wait for Spring, though! I also am very embarrassed to admit to you that I don’t own a bundt pan. Not even one. (Yikes, I know) this needs to change because after seeing this and all if the other bundt cakes I am itching to bake one. This pan you used looks beautiful! I think I need a fancy one to start off with :)

Reply

Kate March 9, 2013 at 9:03 pm

You DEFINITELY need a fancy one! No matter what you bake in them, the cake automatically becomes something special purely because it looks special. A plain ol’ pound cake magically is elevated to elegance. Go fancy ;)

Reply

Anita at Hungry Couple March 7, 2013 at 11:41 pm

I also can’t wait for spring and summer! Your cake is gorgeous…especially that glaze! ;)

Reply

Kate March 9, 2013 at 9:04 pm

Thank you Anita! I was definitely a fan of this icing. It will definitely be adapted for other recipes in the future. It was the perfect consistency!

Reply

ChristineM March 8, 2013 at 9:05 am

where did you get that bundt pan? that recipe looks verrrry nice in it!

Reply

Kate March 9, 2013 at 9:07 pm

Thank you so much Christine! It’s definitely become a favorite. And I know I already mentioned on my FB page that it’s a Nordic Ware Pro Cast Heritage Bundt pan but just in case ;) figure I’ll tell ya twice.

ChristineM March 11, 2013 at 5:32 pm

Thanks Kate, was a little wiped out over the weekend, ha ha! Nordic is good!

Isabelle @ Crumb March 8, 2013 at 11:46 am

Lime and coconut? Sign me up! My better half isn’t fond of coconut in desserts, but this cake looks so amazing that I think he might make an exception.
Also, can I just tell you how gorgeous that bundt is? I’m a sucker for non-traditional bundt pans, especially the ones that create lots of nice little ridges to catch the icing, so I’m suffering from a serious case of bunt pan envy right now.

Reply

Kate March 9, 2013 at 9:10 pm

Aww, thanks so much Isabelle! This cake is amazingly tasty and I just love that pan so much. The two fancy ones I have make me want to find other interesting pans.

Diane March 8, 2013 at 4:13 pm

I have a lime tree that is producing faster than I can come up with new ideas. Can’t wait to make this!!!!

Kate March 9, 2013 at 9:11 pm

Lucky lady! I wish I had a citrus tree of any kind. I’d be in hog heaven! I hope you enjoy this cake. It was one of our favorites.

Kim Bee March 8, 2013 at 10:39 pm

Seriously beautiful bundt Kate. This would get inhaled in 3 seconds here. I love coconut, and pairing it with lime is perfection. Love your pan. I want some mini ones desperately.

Kate March 9, 2013 at 9:14 pm

Thanks so much Kim Bee! I’m so happy you like this.

Laura March 9, 2013 at 12:44 am

Yum! Seriously lime-y! Love it. And I love the pan, it is my oldest bundt pan and one of my faves.

Kate March 9, 2013 at 9:15 pm

Thank you Laura!

The Ninja Baker March 9, 2013 at 5:42 am

Gorgeous, Kate! I love how the icing clings to the cake as if it knows exactly how yummy the coconut and lime cake is inside. Very much appreciate your icing recipe too. I’m always on the hunt for extra scrumptious ones =)

Reply

Kate March 9, 2013 at 9:15 pm

Hope you like the icing! It was definitely yummy and I liked that it was thicker than a glaze but still wasn’t “too much.”

Laura@bakinginpyjamas March 9, 2013 at 10:59 am

Hi Kate,
I’ve just come across your blog and it’s lovely. I’m particularly intrigued by bundtamonth. I love bundt cakes and I was wondering is this something that you do each month, with different themes?
Thanks, Laura.

Reply

Kate March 9, 2013 at 9:28 pm

Hello Laura! Thanks so much! BundtaMonth is a monthly bundt party with a different theme each month. At the beginning of the month, the theme will be posted and you can definitely bake along with us. We’d love to have you. This month the theme is “Tropical.” Pick any tropical ingredient and bake away. Then just come back and link up to the linky tool at the bottom of this post. Also in your post, link back to the hostesses posts and you’re good to go! All the instructions can be found in my BundtaMonth post each month. I can’t wait to see what you bake up! If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

Laura@bakinginpyjamas March 10, 2013 at 6:31 am

Thanks Kate, I’d love to be part of the group :). I’ve noticed with other entries that they all have links in their posts that show what other people have baked with the link tool at the bottom of their posts as well. Would I need to do this, or can I just come back to your site and link my post up?

Reply

Laura@bakinginpyjamas March 10, 2013 at 6:32 am

Thanks, Laura

Kate March 10, 2013 at 1:27 pm

Fantastic! We’d love to have you! All you’ll need to do is link up using the linky code at the bottom of this post. The bundts listed in the post are all the hostesses. They’re meant to provide inspiration for the monthly theme then anyone else can bake to the theme and link up to our posts. If you’re interested in being a hostess, I would reach out to Lora and see if you can be a hostess along with us. I’m sure you’d be welcomed with open arms!

Reply

Laura@bakinginpyjamas March 10, 2013 at 1:45 pm

Great, I’ll get started on some idea’s :). I can’t wait to become part of this group, it looks so much fun. Thanks, I’ll keep the hostess idea in mind. I have one more question, where are the announcement posts to link back too, as I can’t seem to find them.

Rosie @ Blueberry Kitchen March 9, 2013 at 1:47 pm

Oh yum, this sounds delicious – I love the sound of the summery flavour combinations!

Hi Kate,
I’ve created my entry at last. I would of done it sooner only I had to change my recipe as what I was trying before wasn’t working out. I’m looking forward to see what next month’s challenge is.

Made this today. Toasted a little coconut and sprinkled on top of the glaze. Thanks for sharing!

Kate June 1, 2013 at 8:58 pm

Great! I hope you enjoyed it! Toasted coconut over the top must have been just perfect. Yum!
