My 4 year-old caught me off guard by requesting a Lime Cake for Christmas. I found this recipe in time to make it for New Year's Day. We all enjoyed it very very much!

I didn't have time to make the frosting so we simply enjoyed it with a sprinkling of powdered sugar over the lime glaze. The cake was very moist and had a wonderful tart lime flavor. A very pretty color of green as well. A new family favorite.

Very good! I did put the lime & sugar mixture over the cake, however I used a cream cheese frosting (with pecans) instead of the glaze. It worked out beautifully! The cake wasn't too tart or too sweet, it was just right!
