This is a great little cake. I have been making this exact recipe for probably 15 years. I think it came from Cooking Light magazine. It is light & has a nice tart taste to it. It is a nice size cake for a small family. I made this cake again today!

If you love lime this cake is bursting with great flavor. It isn't a showy cake, but it sure tastes fabulous. In a 9 inch pan my cake was only about an 1 & 1/2 inches high. It was fully cooked at 27 minutes. We couldn't wait until it cooled to taste it and it was great warm.
