I was a big fan of this one. Made it for our friends’ birthday dinner. I searched a lot online for a recipe that sounded right to me and finally settled on this one from “Alaska from Scratch“.
Ingredients (see source for specifics):
- cake flour
- baking powder
- baking soda
- butter, lightly softened
- fresh key lime juice (easier said than done without a juicer/squeezer. I may have squeezed the shit out of a few limes manually).
- key lime zest
- green food coloring gel (I used Wilton Leaf Green)
I’ll skip the instructions which can be found from the source, but it was relatively straightforward. I used a generic cream cheese frosting recipe online vs. the one at the source blog, and frosted only the top with the sides visible. Then I cut a few lime slices and twisted them as decoration. It was DELICIOUS and pretty. Win/Win.
