KEY LIME POUND CAKE
A sweet, moist, dense key lime pound cake drizzled with a tart key lime glaze. A delicious Southern twist to a traditional pound cake.
This recipe I originally shared as part of a virtual progressive dinner – of course I brought the dessert. This cake has become one of my most popular cake recipes and if you missed it the first time around, you’ll definitely want to give it a try.
The recipe uses both butter and shortening in the batter. I thought about changing the recipe and using all butter, but decided not to because shortening creates higher, lighter-textured baked goods, while the butter adds great flavor. So I knew a combination would give me the best of both worlds.
- When it comes to measuring flour, a cup is not always a cup. Sifting is a must.
- This pound cake is dense and moist. The batter is thick and it takes a long time to bake. I baked it at 325 degrees F for 1 hour and 30 minutes. That low, slow baking makes this pound cake ‘crusty’ on the outside and with a soft, tender texture and small crumb inside. You’ll be tempted to take the cake out at 1 hour and 15 minutes because the outside is golden brown. Do not. Test it carefully (without moving the cake too much) with a small, long wooden skewer. The cake is done with no crumbs or dry crumbs are on the skewer.
- It takes a little patience to make. You’ll need to cream the butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy. This is a must.
- Also, add the eggs one at a time. You may want to dump them all in at once but resist the urge.
- Finally, allow the cake to cool at least 20 to 30 minutes in the pan before inverting it onto a platter.
