If you’re like me, this Lime Cake recipe will get you excited. There’s a lot of lime in this little old cake.

Ok – I do admit I’m a little citrus cake obsessed lately. I just can’t get enough of those zesty mouthfuls of sunshine.

And while lemon and orange are the most popular of citrus cakes, we shouldn’t overlook the lovely lime.

This Lime Cake recipe is chock full of flavor. There’s lime zest and juice in the cake, a lime sugar glaze and lime scented mascarpone to serve. Have no doubt, lime is the absolute star here.

You can make the cake as tart or sweet as you please by adjusting the sugar quantities. Perfect!
