    My 4 year-old caught me off guard by requesting a Lime Cake for Christmas. I found this recipe in time to make it for New Year's Day. We all enjoyed it very very much!<br/><br/>I didn't have time to make the frosting so we simply enjoyed it with a sprinkling of powdered sugar over the lime glaze. The cake was very moist and had a wonderful tart lime flavor. A very pretty color of green as well. A new family favorite.

    Very good! I did put the lime & sugar mixture over the cake, however I used a cream cheese frosting (with pecans) instead of the glaze. It worked out beautifully! The cake wasn't too tart or too sweet, it was just right!

    This cake is very moist.It was just what I was looking for....a lime cake,made from scratch that used lime jello. Even my picky 14 yr old liked it. Thanks angelfan,this one is really good!


I grew up on a farm and learned to cook from scratch. By age 9 I could follow a recipe.So I have been cookng for a lot of years now. Besides cooking I enjoy bible study, church, crafts, collecting rings and Christmas ornaments, reading, collecting angels and visiting with friends via E mail. Have been married for over 30years and have four children, two of which are handicapped. The kids are all grown now and I am getting use to cooking smaller portions. Recently found out my husband has non-hodgkins-lymphomia. He will start treatment soon. Learning more about healthy eating and healthy cooking.
