Melon Cake

When I think of cake, I immediately think about getting in the kitchen and baking with my babes.  However, this amazing (and healthy) looking melon cake from April Luca is a whole new take on the traditional cake. It’s nutritious, which is super important, and is super easy to make. I also love a recipe that calls for all seasonal ingredients, and there’s no better time than summer to enjoy the amazing melons that are in season.

Here’s what you need to make this refreshing & tasty melon cake:

Melon Cake

  • 1 Whole Watermelon
  • 1 Whole Cantaloupe
  • 1 Whole Honey Dew Melon
  • 10 Strawberries
  • Handful of Blueberries
  • Grapes to Garnish

This is how April made her melon cake…

Melon Cake Take each melon and cut into round slices

Melon Cake Start to stack your melon slices, alternating with different types of melon, and fill the middle in with strawberries

You can serve this healthy, no-bake cake on a cakeplate or just a pretty plate. And if you want to make it a little sweeter, add some whipped cream on top. Yum!
