Refreshing Lime Cake
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix (You can substitute yellow cake mix for the lemon cake mix just add a few teaspoons of lemon juice to the mix)
1 (3 ounce) package lime flavored gelatin mix
1 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 (8oz.) Cream Cheese
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
4 cups confectioners' sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan.
In a large bowl, stir together the cake mix and lime flavored gelatin.
Combine the eggs, oil and orange juice in a blender and blend for at least 5 minutes.
Gradually add the blended ingredients to the dry mixture; beat for 5 minutes using an electric mixer.
Pour into the prepared pan.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
When the cake comes out of the oven, prick holes all over it using a fork.
To make the glaze, combine the lime juice and confectioners sugar in a small bowl. beat until smooth. Pour over the hot cake, this will soak into the cake.
Or cool cake and frost with Lime cream cheese icing.
To prepare icing, blend cream cheese and butter together until creamy; add lime juice and confectioners' sugar and mix as you would buttercream frosting.
