About this recipe: If you love cake and daiquiris, this is the recipe for you. This delicious glazed cake is flavoured with key lime juice and rum. A special treat for afternoon tea or dessert.
Are available at some speciality markets. If you can't get your hands on any, use regular limes.
While this cake certainly had it's good points, overall I was a little disappointed. The flavor was certainly delicate, and would have appreciated a stronger lime taste. Maybe next time I will double the amount of lime zest I put in. The glaze was delicious, but I think I would also double the amount of glaze to make the cake more flavorful overall. As per other reviews, the cake was actually ready after about 75 minutes. It was a little dry I felt also. Sour cream as a replacement for milk may remedy this. I think I will try again and make some alterations as the cake does have potential. - 30 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this cake for my grandaughter's 18th birthday. She wanted a mexican meal and this cake was perfect for dessert. My daughter-in-law said this cake was refreshing. It is a pound cake with a light but distinguished flavor. It is added to my recipe box, a definate keeper. - 07 Mar 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My boyfriend really enjoys key lime pies, so I put this together for him. Great recipe! Reminds me of my grandmother's pound cake, but with a key lime zing. He loved it! - 30 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
