#RecipeSwap: Simple lime cake
And the Recipe Swap is back!! And we are back to the big Sunday group! I am so excited!!! Thanks Christianna for bringing this back! And we are baking cake! And as soon as I saw the cake I knew what I wanted to bake.
Keeping with the spirit of the recipe is a simple cake with citrus. I used limes instead of lemons and I used oil instead of butter. And then I soaked the cake in lime juice. As my mom used to do. Only in that case she soaked it with orange juice and I have no idea how the batter was made. Almost surely not with olive oil. But the spirit of this cake is the same.
The result is a deliciously moist cake with a great citrusy flavor and just a hint of olive oil taste. I loved it! And it would be perfect for breakfast or coffee!
Remember to check out what every one else did for the swap at the bottom of the post!
- 2 eggs
- 6 oz. flour
- 2/3 cup olive oil
- 4 oz. sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 2 limes
- Beat the eggs on high speed adding oil slowly as you would do to make mayo. Keep adding the oil slowly until it is completely absorbed by the egg compost.
- Add the sugar and the salt and beat again until incorporated.
- Add the lime zest and the flour and mix well. Finally add the baking powder and finish mixing.
- Pour in a buttered mold and bake in a 375F oven until golden brown and cooked through, about 40 minutes.
- Squeeze the lime and add sugar and water to taste. Warm up so that the sugar dissolves.
- When the cake is cooked, take it out of the oven. Pierce the cake all over and pour the lime juice over the cake without unmolding.
- Let the cake cool down and absorb the juice. Unmold and serve.
