If you like a sweet and tart combination then you’ll love this recipe. It’s very rich which makes it all the more decadent and delicious and a great cake for high tea or any other occasion where there’s an excuse to eat cake! I created this recipe after taking inspiration from various recipes – it came out so well, I actually couldn’t believe it at first because I changed quantities quite a bit and you know, well, with baking and all, that’s not usually a good idea! But this is a winner guys and I am SO excited to share it with you! I’d love to hear from you and what you think of it!

Hi there Lou,
In an effort to develop my non-existent domestic skills I had decided to try and expand my culinary expertise (read:make and average omelette a bit prettier and called it a frittata/frititier) – then, Gina made me this key lime cake and I, not being a cake eater at all really, couldn’t get enough! So, my house mate and I have decided to rather slowly just only use your website and try all of these. one request – can you just publish a book!! 🙂 xxx Thank you from my future slightly more domestic self xxx
