Buttermilk helps make this cake tender and moist while rum gives it a lighthearted tropical kick. If you'd rather let the whole family enjoy this dessert, however, you can use orange juice for a kid-friendly version.
Would recommend adding additional buttermilk, I might have added double or an extra half. Also used lemon juice instead of lime/rum. Brilliant cake, made three times now and brilliant each time with the additional buttermilk!

This cake is disappointing. Frankly, it tastes more like a blueberry muffin than a cake. I did only use blueberries for the berry portion, but the coconut and lime are nearly unrecognizable in this dish. I did top it with a berry coconut buttercream frosting, which made it taste better, but overall...I'd skip this one.
