Whole wheat Blueberry lemon cake

I have’t been making cakes lately even though I would like to have a slice pretty much every day.  Today I wanted to make something indicative of the season and make a whole wheat Blueberry lemon cake using lemons and blueberries. After all, this combo is quite tasty!

For this version I opted by adding some cream cheese frosting on top. I think this makes the cake to be honest. It is not often that I use frosting for my cakes but once in a while is OK and this one taste very lemony so I hope you like it.

My best friend actually tasted some of it and decided to have this cake for her daughter’s birthday party. She liked it a lot so I guess it was a total success.

Now keep in mind that this cake makes quite a big cake. I used a 9×13 baking cake pan. Like I said before, it is not often that I bake cakes that require frosting and are a little bit more elaborate so I opted for making quite a big one so that I could enjoy it for a few days.

Granted this cake is not to be consumed all the time but once piece here and there is perfectly fine. After all, this is not something we have on a regular basis.

On another note, I have about 3 weeks for the torture to begin, school. I hope I have enough time to keep the recipes coming. I anticipate to be able to at least post twice a week. Cooking and baking are things I do to decompress and relax so I know I will have to in order to keep sane.

Well I hope you like this whole wheat blueberry lemon cake. I sure will be making it again soon when I crave a cake and something sweet.

Enjoy!

  1. The e-mail tagline says popsicles. I almost deleted it because poppy seed popsicles sounds disgusting, but something made me click on it and to my surprise it was pancakes. Yummy!

  2. They look wonderfully fluffy and beautiful!

  3. Hi Miryam – I made the pancakes this morning and love the flavor.  However, the batter was very thin and the result more crepes than pancakes.  I made a new batch of batter, but same.results.  Could the amount of Almond milk be too much?  For 1 1/4 cups flour, the recipe calls for 1 3/4 cups liquid, plus juice of two lemons.  In the second batch, I added more of each flour and another egg.  Batter was still thinner than your pictures appear, but I was able to make something closer to a pancake.  The flavor is amazing and I would make them again, but something is not quite right with recipe.  Thanks!

    • The coconut flour absorbs a lot of liquid. I will have to make them again when I get back to the US to make sure. The batter should be somewhat runny though. I am most certain than less than 1 1/2 cup milk will not work. I will let you know when I make them again.

  4. The website shows using pancake molds. This helps since the batter is runny.
