I made cup cakes out of this recipe and they are delicious. I baked them at 350 deg. for 16 min. I got 36 cup cakes and sprayed the foiled cup cake tins with Pam cooking oil. Flavor is wonderful... will be making these again. Thanks Paula!!
As much as I like following a recipe right on down the first time around, I also like using a lot of the indicated citrus zest! So I was very generous with the key lime zest in this recipe (forget being subtle!), & we had a wonderfully flavorful dessert with this one! Loved the frosting, too, & will be making this cake again, for sure! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made &reviewed in Zaar Cookbook Tag]
Horrible. The cake is about 3" tall and recipe only yields 2 9" layers not 3. Interesting no salt in recipe. Overall I had to find another recipe. Didn't like the crumb and it really lacked the lime flavor
I have baked this cake twice & got great reviews!! I have a preference for the Ghirardelli White Chocolate as the frosting. It has a subtle key lime taste as described. My only problem is that the cake didn't rise & was very dense!! Any suggestions as to why!? Other than that no one really noticed & like I said before I received great reviews!
Although this is a very moist and delicious cake, I did not get the key lime flavor I was looking for. I think something is missing in this recipe. If you want a good cake try this one but if you want a strong key lime taste this is not it.
Delicious! A delicate, fluffy cake with a subtle lime flavor. And the icing is soooo good!
Awesome! I am going to make this cake for my sister who loves Key lIme!!! Thank you!!
Oh god, Paula has done it again. Man this lady is a genius! I swear, I have never gotten a bad recipe from her. She is amazing. You're a genius as well for posting this amazing recipe. It was so refreshing and delicious. I made it nearly a month ago, and my mother cannot stop talking about it. She's telling everyone how great it is! Thank you so much!
What can I say - It a major winner. We all love Paula Deen, However we also love SweetsLady for posting it here for us. Light and yummy! This will be on our regular rotation list!
This was such a great cake. I made it for my friends birthday. I had never made a cake completely from scratch before, but this was fairly easy. The cake was very moist and the subtle lime flavor was awesome. Great frosting too. Thanks so much for posting. made for PRMR tag.
