I got this recipe from a cookbook that I got in Johnson City, TN. It is a book compiled by Pine Grove United Methodist Church with recipes from the locals. This cake is delicious! I hope you enjoy it. Prep time is approximate.

This Cake is soooo Yummy!!!! I tried another key lime cake recipe that uses a box of lemon cake mix, and I thought that one was good. But this one is better. My mother in-law actually asked me for this recipe, which is something that in over 10 years of marriage, she has never done!!!! I like to call my self a pretty good cook, and often get compliments when I cook something for guests. But not from my mother in-law. I didn't use key lime juice or real limes, I just used the lime juice in a bottle, and this recipe is super good. JUST TRY IT!!!!
