    • 3 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon very finely grated lime zest, colored part only



    1. 1
      Cooks Note: If you are using a cake mix other than a butter recipe cake, follow the directions on the box for making the batter substituting 1/2 cup tequila for 1/2 cup of the water.

      I've made this cake twice. The second time using ice cream topping caramel which worked perfectly! The first time I used the Cajeta caramel from a can which was way too thick and globbed at the top of the cake but the cake was delicious. I took the first one for a birthday dessert at a mexican restaurant. I shared with a few servers and next thing we knew other servers were hovering our table for cake! It's a 5 star for sure and very easy to make!

      This cake is a true five star!! I took it to a party last summer and it was gone before the meal was served!! I'm taking it to a Cinco de Mayo party this year!!

      I didn't make any changed but got the sauce at a local Mexican Grocery store.

      This is a fantastic recipe. I was worried about how it would come out in layers, but it did! I'm making it again for a party tomorrow night that has a Mexican theme! I'm sure it'll be a hit!
