You know that I love lemon and have shared lots of  Lovely Lemon recipes with you.  Well, it only stands to reason that if I love lemon that I would also love lime!  And I do!

Calling all lime lovers.  Today’s recipe is a yummy, easy dessert for lime fans.  It is moist and tart. It is amazing!  If you are a lime fan or know anyone that is a lime fan this cake is a must!  I promise, you will not be disappointed!!!

We had it, along with that yummy Almond Cake, for Cali’s graduation party last week.  Our neighbor Rod was invited and anytime Rod is invited to a party at our house you will find Key Lime Cake – he loves it and we love him!  (Actually my mom made it for me because I was running out of time!)

I like making this cake in a bundt pan.

I have also served this for dessert at a church dinner.  We just added a raspberry sauce – it was yummy and it looked pretty too!

    Ohhhhhhh YUMMY! I love key lime even more then I love lemon, is this possible? I think I am going to make this for the dads at church for Fathers Day. But first I will have to take one for the team and make it for myself, for taste testing purposes of course. What a sacrifice ;)
