I had some requests for the Key Lime Cake recipe I showed in this post, so here it is:
KEY LIME CAKE
1 box lemon cake mix
1 1/3 c. vegetable oil*
One 3oz. package of lime flavored gelatin mix
3/4 c. orange juice
3 tsp. fresh lime juice
Mix all together and pour into a 13x9 pan
Bake according to instructions on cake box.
1/2 c. butter (1 stick)
One 8oz. package cream cheese
3 tbsp. fresh lime juice
3 1/2 c. confectioners sugar
In a large bowl, beat the butter and cream cheese til fluffy...add the lime juice and beat together, then add the confectioners sugar and beat. Spread on cake.
Note: I’ve found that ½ lime equals about 3 tsp lime juice, so one whole lime should be all you need to make the cake and the frosting.
*1 1/3 c vegetable oil seems like a lot, but the addition of the lime flavored jello would make the cake too dry without the added oil.
