I was very pleased with Jen of My Kitchen Addiction’s choice of lime this week for BSI (Blogger Secret Ingredient). I love lime! I always have a good supply of them on hand. They are my favorite citrus. Tart but so incredibly sweet at the same time. Much sweeter than their cousin – the lemon. I use them in everything from cole slaw to muffins.
Since my aunt and uncle were visiting from Florida and I was in charge of dessert I thought a cake would be nice. This is a dense cake, extremely moist with a strong banana flavor and big hints of lime and coconut.
I glazed the cake twice. The first time I poked holes in the still warm cake and glazed it with a watery-thin lime glaze. Little pockets of sugary lime were nestled throughout the cake. I used the leftover lime glaze to make a thicker ‘icing’ and glazed it a second time. Melt-in-your mouth delicious! Divine with lime flavor.
