Paleo, Gluten-Free Lemon Blueberry Cake

When I am in need of a dessert for a special occasion, this cake is the one I always seem to fall back to. For the unique combination of tartness from the blueberries and lemon to the sweetness of the coconut flour . Of course the blueberries can be swapped out for any type of berries of your choosing. Blueberries were at their most flavourful when I decided on making this cake and loved the flavour so much I have just not wanted to try a different fruit. Though I have experimented with adding more layers of flavour by top this delicious cake with strawberries and raspberries. Delicious! After you taste this cake, it will leave you wanting to make a special occasion out of every day.
