Ingredients

1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter, unsalted
cold and cut into small pieces
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 ½ teaspoons lime zest
1 tablespoon key lime juice
cup buttermilk
or 2/3 cup milk with 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Lime syrup:
1 cup powdered sugar
½ cup key lime juice

Directions

Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Butter and flour an 8 inch (6 cup) bundt pan or a 9 inch (8 cup) springform tube pan.

Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt until well mixed.

Use your fingers to rub the cold butter into the flour mixture until crumbly, or use a food processer to mix.

In another mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, key lime zest, juice and buttermilk until well blended.

Pour the liquid mixture to the flour mixture, and stir with a wooden spatula until just moistened and incorporated.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for about 45 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Let cool for about 10 minutes in the pan on a wire rack.

Loosen the edges and invert the cake onto the wire rack set over a plate.

To make syrup: In a small bowl, whisk together the confectioner's sugar and lime juice.

While the cake is still warm, poke holes in it using a skewer, cake tester or a fork.

Slowly spoon the lime syrup over the cake.

Cake can be made ahead and kept covered in refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

The leftovers can be sliced up, and freeze in an air-tight container for up to at least 1 month.

I love key lime cake as much as I love key lime pie. How about you? But I do not like too rich version, so I did a few changes and made a much healthier but still delicious key lime cake (see the linked recipe below).

It was easy to make and totally fuss-free. If you are big on key lime cake, this recipe will for sure please you :)
