This Key Lime Bundt Cake is to die for! It’s moist, tart and sweet. Seriously, I could eat the whole thing in one sitting.
I love that it’s made with a boxed cake mix, because we all know that my baking skills are a work in progress. The best part is that it doesn’t taste like a boxed cake, at all. The key is to add things to the cake mix to make it super delicious.
I cheated even more with this recipe. For the lime juice, I used bottle lime juice. If you want to get enough limes for 1 cup of juice then do it. I had the lime juice and wanted to try it. It was perfect, you can’t even tell I used bottled juice vs fresh limes.
I also used canned frosting as a glaze. I used Pillsbury’s Creamy Supreme Key Lime Frosting and microwaved the frosting till it was soft enough to pour over the cake like a glaze. A great way to make a tasty glaze without all the work. Not to mention the frosting gave it another level of key lime flavoring.
Since this cake is so easy to put together this would be great for any St. Patrick’s Day festivities you may be going to. It will be the star of the party.
