This recipe comes from a community church cookbook. It is easy and delicious. I have friends that have made this with other flavor combinations and the result has always been good thus far. The best part is since it is not "iced", we can consider it a lower-fat snacking cake. LOL!
Subtle yet distinctive, the difference between Key Lime juice and regular lime juice comes through in this delicious cake. Because of its pale green color, this cake resembles a lemon cake...unless you add a few drops of green food color to the cake or glaze! The recipe came from a local paper years ago. My mile high altitude requires a longer cooking time, so you may have to adjust the timing on this.
I've had this recipe for probably 30 years. It's been awhile since I made it but it's nice and moist, wonderful flavor. Several already on this site but none with these exact ingredients. The icing is a bit thin if you follow directions, it's more like a glaze, so I think it needs maybe another cup of powdered sugar.
I have long been a fan of other "poke cakes", because the fruity gelatins make the cake incredibly moist and give it a nice burst of flavor. I thought this would be a nice rendition for Halloween. It comes from Quick Cooking magazine.
