Time for a new cake recipe. This time it is for a raw coconut, blueberry lime cake. It is a fairly simple recipe with mostly coconut ingredients, really.

Making the cake

  1. Start by mashing the coconut butter and the blueberries with a fork in a suitable bowl. The mix should be quite easy to handle as the coconut butter is warm.
  2. Take a cake dish, line it with baking paper to avoid the crust sticking to the walls and press the crust out in the dish to form the crust.
  3. Put the crust in the fridge to let it settle and stiffen.
  4. Use a mixer to blend the ingredients to the filling until they have a smooth and even texture.
  5. Take out the now firm crust from the fridge and add the filling.
  6. Place back in the fridge and allow it to firm before serving.
  7. Top with raspberries, cacao nibs and chia seeds.

Tip: If you don’t eat all of it at once it is perfect to store the leftovers in the fridge. Just remember to take it out a few minutes before serving so that it is possible to cut through it to create pieces.
