Coconut Lime Pound Cake Recipe

Hey there,

Anyone out there interested in a piece of this delicious Coconut pound cake?  Yes?  No?  I started to write this post but I can’t seem to think of what to write, my mind is a blank today. 🙁  Ok, here is a very interesting topic that I have been discussing with my students.  How well are you sleeping these days?  It seems that most have not been sleeping well.  Nightmares, dreams, etc have disrupted a good night’s sleep.   (honestly so has mine)  It is quite interesting to hear how everyone is reacting to waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to get back to sleep.  One thing they have told me is that the refrigerator is definitely their go-to place! mine tooooo.  

Late-night snacks for most are either chips or leftovers.  If we were in Greece, it would probably be a Gyro. Most of these shops are open until 3 in the morning.  Then again we have the Cantine’s that are open from11 pm to 6 am the following morning..  My late-night snack is usually a bowl of fruit or cereal.  I used to go for that bag of chips, but I have stopped that a longgggg time ago.  Getting back to sleep is usually difficult, I tend to stay awake for about another hour before I am able to fall back to sleep.

Last year was the first time I entered the Great Bloggers Bake-off which was a lot of fun.  And this year I thought I was late with my entry but I am not and I am solo happy that I can be a part of that wonderful new tradition.  So, I decided to go with this delicious little recipe.  Yummm  It’s a summer dessert cake and so easy.  Add a nice large glass of Ice Tea with lemon and a scoop of Ice Cream for those hot summer days.  🙂 

Have a great weekend everyone!!

  1. Ooo a good snack to have that's not too heavy and yet is still comforting. So you've been able to enter the Great Bloggers Bake-off this year? That's fab! I'm not surprised about your students. I've come across a couple of news stories about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on our mental health and sleep, predominantly with more vivid dreams. There's so much stress and worry that it's likely to seep out into our dreams, all this built up emotion needs a way out and yet it's always there, even in our subconscious. xx

      Hi Caz,,,Yessss It is fun :) I know the virus has had a major impact on sleep. Too much stress :( Are you sleeping well?
      • Sleep is so important, yet many of us struggle with it and perhaps all the more so now. I've had the weirdest thing happen with dreams though and this was before the coronavirus pandemic. Since mid-August last year - I kid you not - I've had vivid, memorable dreams and nightmares every single night. What's going?! It's been nearly 12 months of daily dreams and nightmares, I've never, ever known anything like it. How about you, Sophie, how're you sleeping? I hope you've been able to get some good rest most nights at least, and hopefully any dreams are nicer ones rather than nightmares! Just imagine if you could dream of tasty food and desserts every night, how good would that be?! 😉xx
  2. This looks dangerous!! I would eat the whole loaf 😂💕
  3. Oh yum. My type of cake for sure.
