Here's a recipe for the key lime cake I make:

1 lemon cake mix
1 3oz lime jello mix
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup key lime juice
4 eggs

My question is - can I add one less egg to make the cake lighter?? When baked, it's a very dense cake. While it's good, it's just VERY thick and dense. I'd like to make it a little lighter, but am unsure what to adjust.
Thanks for any help!!!

Here is the key lime cake recipe I use,
I get raves on this cake. I have to go on what other people say. I don't really care for the taste of any key lime items. I use Comstock canned pie filling for my cakes and a couple of weeks ago I saw key lime pie filling in the Comstock brand I h't used it yet, could be a great addition to the key lime cake.

Do they all come out as a dense cake?? If so, I'll leave it. They've tried it before and they like it, it just seems really dense. This is for a wedding cake and is one of the 5 tiers I have to do!

the cake recipe given by acookieobsession is a dense cake. I made it the other day and it is also very moist. (Its the Pacman cake in my pics). But it is very good, especially with a cream chese frosting. [/b]
