Lime Bundt Cake with lime glaze is a wonderful treat for citrus lovers. Who doesn’t like that amazing flavor and scent of citrus fruit? We’ve already started to see wonderfull smelling mandarins, oranges and limes at the market. This is one of my favorite times of the year, so I get really excited when I think about all the recipes with limes, lemons, oranges and grapefruit I’m planning to make throughout the season.
If you don’t like the strong flavor of limes and prefer using lemon, just go ahead. You may also want to check our Lemon Poppy Seed Cake, which is sweet and quite lemony. I slightly drizzled this Lime Bundt Cake with lime glaze and loved the result. I didn’t use much glaze since I didn’t want to have an overly sweet cake in the end. Thanks to the lime juice and lime zest in and on top of the cake, it was wonderfully tangy with a mesmerizing lime scent. You can even feel like you are in a lime orchard. Citrus fruit have a special place in our family, everyone loves them so much. We love to have something with citrus flavor in all seasons. Creamy Lemon Ice Cream loaded with lemon zest is our summer favorites and this lime cake has already become a hit for fall and winter.
I love when I end up with a scrumptious success in the kitchen and this cake was one of those successful treats. Noone wants to have a failure after preparing all ingredients and spending time on a recipe, I know. Trust me, this Lime Bundt Cake is a foolproof cake, so you can try it with no worries. The glaze is optional and you can have your cake plain, but I have a suggestion for serving. Sprinkle little powdered sugar and a little lime zest on top of the cake right before serving to double the joy as I do whenever I make Zesty Lemon Carrot Cake.
We are so obsessed with lemon and lime flavors that we hate wasting their zest. We dry the zest and use as a spice when cooking chicken and meat. Are you a fan of citrus zest? Read How to Dry Lemon Zest, you can apply it to other citrus fruit and create new recipes with it.
