This lime cake is a wonderful alternative to Key Lime Pie or Lemon Bars. The buttery pecans and coconut ensure this cake slice pairs well with Asian and Mexican food. We serve this as part of our Christmas cookie swap or for Cinco de Mayo, served with our beef burritos.
You can, of course, make yours more professional and less rustic than mine.
Key Lime and Lime
Key lime is also known as Mexican lime. Wikipedia does a whole page on the colour and a slightly different flavour of key lime.
We, however, are cooks that work with what we have. Ocado bring limes, I make this alternative to key lime cake.
If you looking for a good key lime pie recipe, this one from the GBBO Cookbook is delightful. For the experienced baker, though.
I think to eat cake is very good for us, but it’s the size of the slice and how often you have it.Mary Berry
Lime Cake Slice
Ah, the wisdom of Mary Berry. What a national treasure! One of the best things about this recipe is that you can make the slices varying sizing depending on the occasion.
We made little squares because they were being served as part of a buffet of biscuits. We used an 8×8 glass pan and then cut into 8 squares and 4 rectangles (from the middle). The pretty parts in the middle were a gift for my lovely neighbours and the 8 remaining squares were just perfect for our party.
