So it seems like ages since I made anything with limes. Or anything with fruit for that matter. I seem to be stuck in a bit of a rut of only eating things from the top of the food pyramid. If its at the top it must be the most important right? Right…
So I was lured into the fruit shop by my guilty conscience, extreme sugar low and the memory of this lovely lady’s lime creation. I was also drawn in by the sight of all those bright green limes winking at me. See! I like fruit. Fruit that is incorporated into cake. I think this is a losing battle…
Yes I have made this cake before, you might remember it from this post. Thank god for the CWA! And limes. Im always thankful for limes. But I wasn’t satisfied with the original recipe. It wasn’t well, limey enough! How could I inject a concentrated shot of lime goodness into this cake?
I personally think there’s nothing like a warm lime syrup cake to help you beat the winter chills. You can find the recipe for the cake here. And remember, limes = fruit = good for you. What more incentive do you need?
