key lime cake

This Key Lime Cake is such a refreshing summer dessert.  I modified this recipe here and just used things I had at my house.  Instead of white chocolate icing I just made a basic cream cheese icing.

It turned out to be extremely moist and very dense but delicious.  Next time I would double the icing for thicker layers in between and add a pinch of salt to the cake batter and perhaps a few more zests of lime
(is that how you'd say it?)


1 3/4 cups sugar
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
4 large splashes of REAL lime juice
several zests of lime
splash of vanilla
few drops of green food coloring

bake at 340 for 18 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean


4oz cream cheese
4 oz unsalted butter
3 cups powdered sugar
splash of vanilla

garnish with some zest of lime and lime slice
