Trisha Yearwood's Key Lime Cake

I had some limes...I made a cake.

Here is the recipe.


1 3ounce Pkg lime flavored gelatin

1 1/3 cup sugar

2 cups flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

5 large eggs, slightly beaten

1 1/2 cups vegetable oil

3/4 cup orange juice

1 Tbsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup key lime juice (about 25 key limes or 4 regular limes)

1/2 cup confectioners sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, prepare (3) 9 inch round cake pans
In a large bowl mix together gelatin, sugar, flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda. Stir to mix well. Add eggs, oil, orange juice, vanilla, lemon juice. Divide batter among the 3 pans and bake for 35-40 minutes. Cool cakes in pan for 5 minutes then invert onto a wire rack. While the cakes are still hot mix together the lime juice and confectioners sugar and pour over the cakes (you can pierce the cakes with a fork to help it soak in more.)

CREAM CHEESE ICING (I doubled this recipe)

1 stick of room temp butter

1 8 ounce pkg cream cheese

1 1lb box of confectioners sugar

Cream butter and cream cheese until smooth, add confectioners sugar until combined and smooth, spread in between layers and all over cake.
