Made for church picnic. Accidently put the 1/3 cup lime juice in the batter and did not compensate with more flour. So it was very dense. Added star fruit to the top, since I have an over abundance. I will not give it a star rating until I make it correctly.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8 1/2 by 4 1/4 by 2 1/2-inch loaf pan(or 3 mini pans).
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt into 1 bowl. In another bowl, whisk together the yogurt, 1 cup sugar, the eggs, lime zest, and vanilla. Slowly whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. With a rubber spatula, fold the vegetable oil into the batter, making sure it’s all incorporated.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 50 minutes (about 35 in the mini pans), or until a cake tester placed in the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  4. Meanwhile, cook the 1/3 cup lime juice and remaining 1/3 cup sugar in a small pan until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is clear. Set aside.
  5. When the cake is done, allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Carefully place on a baking rack over a sheet pan. While the cake is still warm, pour the lime-sugar mixture over the cake and allow it to soak inches Cool.
  6. For the glaze, combine the powdered sugar and lemon juice and pour over the cake when completely cooled.
