      This is cooling as I type. I snagged a piece from it because it smelled so good and I couldn't resist. I also made it in a loaf pan and I have put a lime glaze on top after poking holes in it so it could soak in. I didn't use the peanuts just out of personal preference. You have to try this one if you like Limes!!

      This is a very easy cake to do since i usually have everything on hand. I used key limes and added about 3 tsp of zest in for looks. I also double glazed it with a lime glaze I found on another site. Like some of the others, I made it in a loaf pan. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

      this cake was so great! it wasn't as fluffy as some other reviewers said theirs was, but that's probably because i hand beat the batter....very delicious lime taste :)) my lime gave 3 tbs of juice and a very delightful light 'crust' baked on the outside--- will definitely make again THANK YOU! ^^
