Who Wants a Slice of Lime Cake? Get the Recipe

I’ve heard of lemon cake, but LIME cake?! You don’t have to ask me twice because I’m sold! Recently, I discovered this delicious recipe for a lime-flavored pound cake, and I thought, how amazing would this be with a little vanilla ice cream? Pretty impressive, I think. Now, I’ll be honest with you: I cannot bake. (If you’ve seen some of the other recipes on this site, you’re already well aware.) But fortunately, I have friends who can, and I asked one of them to give it a go. The result was… well… fantastic! Just as I suspected. So, let’s get ready to bake a cake!

A dense fluffy pound cake flecked with lots of fresh lime zest, doused in a lime and sugar soak.
