If you need a dessert that is easy to make and sure to impress....this is it! I used Adams brand vanilla extract and Dixie Crystals brand sugar to make this amazingly delicious cake and couldn't have been happier with the results.  Next time around I will bake this in my Anolon cobalt blue baker for a visual treat!

Thanks to our sponsors we have 5 giveaways going on this week !

Blueberry Coconut Almond Springtime Cake

1 2/3 cups almond flour
1 1/2 tsp Adams vanilla extract
2/3 cup finely shredded coconut
zest of 2 lemons
1 1/4 cups Dixie Chrystals sugar
1 1/4 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 cup plus flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 tsp salt
4 large eggs
3/4 cup plus 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9-inch/23-cm round cake pan and line with parchment paper, then set aside.

Place the almond flour, coconut, sugar, flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl and whisk.

Place the eggs in a separate bowl and whisk lightly. Add the melted butter, vanilla extract and lemon zest to the eggs and whisk again until well combined.

Pour this into the dry mixture and whisk to combine. Fold in 1 cup/150 g of the blueberries, then pour the mixture into the pan.

Sprinkle rest of the blueberries and the almonds on top. Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.

Set on a cooling rack for 30 minutes before inverting the cake out of the pan, removing the parchment paper and placing right side up on a serving plate.

  10. Lemon supreme pound cake has been my favorite for years but a friend shared her mom's old recipe for orange juice cake and it might have taken first place. I am playing with combining the two. First test was really good but I think what I am going to make this week will top that result.

  11. Apple pie is my favorite.

  12. I was a timid kid until my mid youngsters. It was by then that I started to open up and turn out to be more amiable.popeyes chicken sherman tx
