Blueberry coconut cake. Bursting with the flavors of blueberries and coconut, this pretty cake is going to be a stunner at your next gathering. Create this ultimate treat layered with cream cheese frosting and adorned with fresh blueberries for next level entertaining.
I’m talking about layered cakes covered with delectable frosting that are pretty and delicious at the same time. Today’s recipe is all about this beautiful blueberry coconut cake heavily focusing on the two amazing ingredients- blueberry and coconut.
Blueberries, one of the key ingredients, appears in this recipe in two different forms. One, frozen blueberries in the cake. Two, fresh blueberries in the blueberry cream cheese frosting and decorations. Coconut, the second key ingredient, in the form of desiccated coconut adds a beautiful crunchy texture to the cake.
Ok, let’s break down the steps involved in this blueberry coconut cake.
First, bake the layers of the cake. Mix dry and wet ingredients separately and then combine them together to whip up the batter. You’ll also need to add the frozen blueberries and coconut to the mixture. As we are using frozen blueberries in this recipe, the batter needs to be thick.
Once the layers come out of the oven, allow to cool before you cover with frosting. The cream cheese frosting is a delectable blend of cream cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla extract. To make the blueberry cream cheese frosting, I made a simple sweet mixture of blueberries and cinnamon combined it with a little cream cheese frosting to create the spreadable consistency.
Now, it’s time of assemble the cake. Arrange the layers on top of each other with a little cream cheese frosting. Lightly cover the cake with frosting (also called crumb coat) and refrigerate. Then cover the cake in frosting, add a layer of blueberry cream cheese frosting on the top, and use your imagination to decorate the cake.
I decorated this blueberry coconut cake with cream cheese frosting, fresh blueberries and mint leaves.
And there you go. A real showstopper and a centerpiece for your next gathering.
