Ingredients
  • For the Pound Cake:
  • 3 sticks sweet butter
  • 1 package cream cheese
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 5 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • For the Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Zest of 1 lime
Directions
  • Step 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Step 2 Make the cake: In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy.
  • Step 3 Mix in sugar, and then gradually add in eggs 1 to 2 at a time, beating on low until combined.
  • Step 4 Mix in lime juice, then flour.
  • Step 5 Fold in lime zest.
  • Step 6 Grease 4 mini loaf pans and pour in cake batter until each one is about 3/4 full.
  • Step 7 Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean, 43 to 45 minutes. (If you don’t have mini loaf pans, you can grease and fill a Bundt pan and bake 70 to 73 minutes.)
  • Step 8 Let cool for 15 minutes.
  • Step 9 Make the glaze: Whisk together powdered sugar, lime juice, water and vanilla. (If the glaze is too thick, add extra water, about a teaspoon at a time.)
  • Step 10 Pour on top of cooled pound cake, then top with lime zest and serve.
