Posted for ZWT II - Africa/Middle East, as taken from Epicurean.com. This is such an easy cake that even the kids can make it with some adult supervision.

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!!
