Some of the other recipes I found use orange juice as well, so maybe you could substitute pineapple for some other liquid (milk in the above recipe).

I use the one from the Cake Mix Doctor. It has a lime curd to go with it that is to die for. My clients love it!
If you would like the receipe, just let me know and I will post it.

I used one of the ones on this site and the family fought over the leftovers the next day. Raspberry filling with it was good, VERY moist cake. Although I could not get key limes so it was lime juice.

Suela, was the recipe you used by lori_nurse as posted here? I am assuming that the small lemon pudding is a box of unprepared pudding? It's not too clear as the next ingredient listed is applesauce.

Yes it is the "Great key lime cake", and I used unprepared lemon jello.

So Blairsmom, would you substitute pineapple juice for the milk in this recipe? Or will you go ahead and use the milk?

Thanks Suela! Of course I meant to write jello (too many things in my head!!). Has anyone tried this cake with buttercream icing with key lime juice added? Also, would this be a good cake under fondant?

I would like to know how it turns out. I tried Paula Deen's last weekend & it was a complete disaster, but had a wonderful flavor.

I use the recipe listed above by Blairsmom, and it's always a huge hit. Be careful, though...when I shared this last year on CC I was informed that the poster didnt know "...what it is, but key lime it ain't!" He pointed out that lime jello and juice don't constitute key lime. Sigh. Any way you look at it, the recipe is a good one, is easy, and people love it. Good luck!
