Strawberry Lime Cake (Grain, Dairy, Nut, Refined Sugar Free)


Strawberry Lime Cake (Grain Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free, Refined Sugar Free)


To me, there’s nothing quite like the flavors of strawberry and lime together. They belong together. It’s kind of like PB and J, Mickey and Minnie, salt and pepper. Or my belly and bacon. Yes, definitely my belly and bacon 🙂 


Just like my belly and bacon make me happy, so does this strawberry lime cake. It’s refreshing and summer and you’re just going to love it!


The best part is that it’s completely grain free, dairy free, nut free and refined sugar free, but I promise you that you would never know it. Annnnnd , it’s also been kid tested and approved by my picky kid taste testers! High fives all around 🙂 Enjoy!

For the whipped "cream" icing:

    So, I’ve been trying to go gluten free recently. I made this dessert for Mother’s Day dinner last night and it was a HUGE success. I didn’t tell anyone about the ingredients and they all loved it! Thanks for posting.

    how long does the cream stay whipped?

    • Primally Inspired

      From what I’ve seen, as long as you need it to. I’ve never had a problem with it getting “un-whipped.” I usually keep this dessert in the fridge until ready to serve, but I’ve also left it out for a whole day on my counter (oops) and it stayed whipped and was delicious 🙂 Hope that helps!

    Thanks girl!

    I found this recipe last week and it looked so good. I decided to make it for our Labor Day family BBQ. I am a bit OCD and made a “practice” taste tester for my 4 kids and hubby today. I am in heaven! It is pure awesomeness. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Looking forward to trying more of them.

    Have you ever successfully doubled the recipe? Also, do you think the same ingredients will work with dairy whipping cream?

    Does the coconut flour give a coconut taste? Is substituting it with almond flour an option?

    Your recipe sounds divine! Once I have frosted the cake, how long can I keep it refrigerated before the frosting begins to lose quality?
