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.
- 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box lemon cake mix
- 1 (3 1/2 ounce) box instant lemon pudding mix

Great recipe! It wasn't hard to decide whether or not to give this recipe a 5-Star rating. It was sweet and tart. It had a slight sour taste in the icing, but was great! Definitely will make again!
My coworkers loved it.
Good and easy! The key limes took the most time but it turned out great!
