Key Lime Cake

Being that I live in the land where Key Lime Pie is the official state pie I am a happy camper. It is my favorite pie after all. I mean they have Key Lime everything here. Key Lime Popsicles, Key Lime Ice Cream, Key Lime Cookies, Key Lime Cheesecake,Key Lime Pie On A Stick dipped in chocolate. If it’s Key Lime they have it. So last year my husband said he wanted a Key Lime Cake for his birthday. I was like REALLY! A KEY LIME CAKE. So to not disappoint my Sweetie I began my quest to find a baker that made this specialty. And as the saying goes, “As easy as pie” I found one. So his birthday came and we got the cake. Let me just say the cake left a lot to be desired and I should have went with the idea of baking it myself. So out of total disappointment the Chef in me kicked in and I decided to Google  for  recipes. I thought the search was going to be hard but to my surprise there were loads of recipes for Key Lime Cake. I picked one out that I really loved and decided to give it a try. Boy am I glad that I did. This cake is moist and sweet and tart all rolled up in a pretty bright green package. Warning: Pucker Up! This cake has a real citrus kick.

INGREDIENTS

CAKE
1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix
1 1/3 cups vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 (3 ounce) package lime flavored gelatin mix
3/4 cup orange juice

GLAZE
1/2 cup key lime juice
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

FROSTING 
1/2 cup butter
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
4 cups confectioners’ sugar

INSTRUCTIONS

Combine cake mix, gelatin mix, oil, eggs and orange juice. Pour into three 8 inch cake pans. Bake according to instructions on box. While the cake is still hot, mix the key lime juice and confectioners’ sugar together. Pierce the cakes with a fork and pour the glaze all over the cakes on the cooling rack. Allow cakes to cool completely, then frost.

To make the frosting: In a large bowl, beat the butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add vanilla extract and confectioners sugar. Mix well and spread over cooled cakes. Eat & Enjoy.

* CHEF’S TIP: If you do not have Real Key Limes or Real Key Lime Juice in your area just substitute it for Regular Lime juice. Happy Baking!
