Lime and sour cream bundt cake

Lime and sour cream cake


I stumbled upon this recipe while making a cake for a colleague's baby shower. I had a whole bunch of limes and while I came across lemon and sour cream cake recipes, I didn't find any for lime. But one can hardly go wrong, right?

So I substituted and made some small changes and the lime and sour cream recipe is ready. If you are entertaining or going for a get together on memorial day, this is a great and easy cake for the occasion.

The tartness of the lime glaze on top really adds freshness to the cake. 

Ingredients:
21/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tspoon baking powder
1/2 tspoon baking soda
1/4 tspoon salt
1 3/4 cups sugar
3/4 cup oil
1 cup sour cream
3 large eggs
1 1/2 tspoon lime zest
2 tbspoon lime juice
1 tspoon vanilla extract

For glazing:
2 tbspoon lime juice
1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tbspoon water

Method:
Preheat the oven to 350 degF. Butter and flour the bundt pan and set it aside.

I like to strain my dry ingredients together. It takes out any lumps etc. Strain flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. Keep it aside.

Beat oil and sugar together for a couple of minutes. Then add in the sour cream and zest and mix till the mixture is smooth.

Add in the eggs, one at a time and mix until combined. Then add in the lime juice and vanilla extract.

Next, it time to mix the flour. Add in the flour in three batches, mixing it in low speed until everything is combined and smooth.

Add the batter into the bundt pan and bake for 55-60 minutes till the toothpick comes out clean.

Cool the cake before glazing.
