I made this cake this morning, but have yet to cut into it. I made it for my mom's bday. I hope it turned out ok. Will have to update you. I intended this to be a dense cake with a glaze topping. I referred to several recipes for a lime cake before concocting my own version. I like to make a recipe my own, plus make it a bit healthier. Most cakes call for far too much sugar and animal fat. This makes just a bit larger cake than a square or round pan will hold. I used a 7"x9" pyrex baking dish. I am by no means experienced when it comes to cooking or baking. Hope it turned out....
