Lemon Coconut Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

lemon cakeThis month we are all over spring, and the bundt cakes are inspired by this beautiful season.
Who doesn’t love spring, saying goodbye to the winter, the smell of the flowers and all the cleaning the we need to make, yes I do really clean my house like nobody business.
And this month I have to said thank you to Tara from Noshing with the Nolands for this amazing theme.
Ok but back to the cake, with a classic flavor in this season lemon, and some coconut flavor just to give you a preview of the summer.
This cake has a soft crumb, with a strong flavor of lemon and coconut, a little tart but sweet and with some crunchy peaces.
Hope you make and enjoy it.
