Key Lime Pound Cake
Contributed by: Pam Preston
  • For the cake:
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 large eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. lime zest
  • 1/4 cup key lime juice
  • For the glaze:
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 2 TBS key lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
For the cake:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Beat butter and shortening at medium speed or until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.
In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Alternately add flour mixture and milk to butter mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at a low speed just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla, key lime zest and key lime juice. Pour batter into greased and floured 10-inch (12 cup) tube pan.
Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 20 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted at the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 to 15 minutes, remove from pan to wire rack.
For the glaze:
Mix all ingredients together and brush over top and sides of cake.
