Key Lime Bundt Cake with Coconut Lime Glaze

The first official BBQ holiday is so close 🙂 Why am I so excited? Well, it has been such a long wait and this year we are not hosting a BBQ…no planning required, no last minute trips to the wineshop or supermarket. We are invited over to some friends 🙂 This means they will be spoiled with some nice, bubbly bottles of Australian Sparkling Shiraz (OMG! all my friends here looooove sparkling Shiraz…to that point that I am going to my local wineshop and it is sold out) and with cake.

Key Lime Bundt Cake with Coconut Lime Glaze

Ok, it is not just a cake, it is always a bundt cake. I love baking bundt cakes because they are so beautiful, nice and brown on the outside and moist inside. I like experimenting with flavor combinations so, I made this Key Lime Bundt Cake with Coconut Lime Glaze this past weekend to be sure it will be perfect for this occasion.

I am in love with this new combination, no kidding! It is refreshing, just perfect for summer and the cake (half of it is already gone…) is light, airy and incredibly good. I think I will take a break from desserts, otherwise my jeans will not fit me for too long 🙂

This Key Lime Bundt Cake is not overly sweet with a wonderful, fresh lime flavor and a hint of ginger. I used buttermilk for this recipe to make it moist and airy. Bundt cakes cannot be anything but moist and the coconut lime glaze takes this cake to that perfect, top level! I am more than sure that it is going to be a crowd pleaser.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes


  • Cake
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup key lime juice

  • Glaze
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • lime zest


  1. Preheat oven to 350F/ 180C. Spray a regular sized bundt pan with cooking oil and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or using a hand mixer or beat together the eggs, sugar, vegetable oil, buttermilk, white vinegar, lime juice, lime zest, vanilla extract and grated ginger until the mixture is well combined.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the mixture, 1/2 a cup at a time, mixing between each new addition to avoid creating lumps.
  4. Pour the batter in the prepared bundt pan and smooth the top. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean. Allow cooling in the pan for 10-15 minutes and then invert on a wire rack.

I remember the first time I had sparkling Shiraz at a BBQ in Australia - I couldn't believe such a thing had existed and I didn't know about it! Your cake is just so pretty - as always your photos make me drool.

Oooh! I love sparkling Shiraz! (Especially Australian...of course!!) I adore the fresh lime flavours you've got in this bundt cake!! Also that you haven't used too much sugar. I am forever changing baking recipes because they are too sweet! :)
