Lime Pound Cake is a moist, delicious and not overly sweet dessert idea! http://www.cleanfreshcuisine.com/?p=4255


  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp. Baking Soda
  • 2 Limes
  • 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar (divided)
  • 3/4 Cup Butter
  • 1 1/4 Cups Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla
  • 1/2 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt


Heat oven to 325 degrees.  Grease and flour 10″ bundt pan.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda.

Grate one tablespoon of the lime peel and squeeze limes (yield should be 1/4 cup lime juice).

In a large bowl, beat butter with sugar until well blended at low speed.  Beat until light at high speed, about 3-4 minutes.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each.  Beat in lime peel and vanilla.

At low speed, alternately beat in flour and Greek yogurt.

Spoon batter into prepared pan and bake about 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.

With a knife, loosen cake from sides of pan.  Cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes.  Remove cake from pan by quickly inverting pan on serving plate.

Prepare lime glaze:  Mix the 1/4 cup of lime juice with 1/4 cup powdered sugar; whisk together and brush over top of warm cake.

Sift an additional 1/4 cup of powdered sugar over top of cake. 16 Servings
