Lemon and Lime Cake

This is a very tart and moist cake. The cream cheese frosting cuts the tartness of the cake. Everyone that has had it, LOVES it!


  • 1 box lemon flavor cake mix
  • 1 sm. box lime gelatin
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 keylime juice
  • 1/3 c oil
  • 3 eggs
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup Powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. Keylime juice
  • Combine ingredients and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour batter into prepared pans (sprayed with cooking oil, I use pam) or cupcake liners. Cool. Pierce top several times with wooden skewer or fork and pour glaze over cake/cupcakes. Frost with cream cheese frosting (I used Cream Cheese Butter cream found here on CC). Makes 2 dozen good sized cupcakes or 1 9×13 cake. Round cake pans would work too.

This cake was delicious, especially with the cream cheese buttercream. Very refresihing. I also added some lemon and lime zest to the batter to bring out the citrus flavor.
