Posted by Judy | 11:02 AM | 15 comments »

Residents of sunny Florida and guests alike are well acquainted with Key Lime Pie. Key Lime Cake is a refreshing twist, perfect for birthday or friendly gatherings. It’s easy to make and has all the ingredients that make any recipe yummy—sugar, butter eggs! Enjoy!
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
2 Cups Flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
5 eggs
1 1/3 Cups Vegetable oil
3/4 Cups Orange Juice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon extract
1 3-ounce box Lime Jello
1/3 Cup Lime Juice (or use Realime)
1/3 Cup powdered sugar
8oz Cream Cheese
1 Stick Butter
1tsp Vanilla extract
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
Blend all ingredients with a mixer
Mix cake ingredients together until well blended. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. Mix the powdered sugar & lime juice (lime mix) and set aside. Once you remove the cake from the oven, poke holes in the top with a fork. Pour the Lime Mix over the cake and let cool. Frost with Cream Cheese frosting.

    Sounds yummy. My other half would eat the whole thing and go into sugar shock. He loves key lime pie.
