Another recipe? YES. And trust me, this one is worth bookmarking.
*I am currently in the U.S. visiting my family! We are all going on holiday together, and I am so looking forward to relaxing and taking a technology break! I pre-wrote this post a few weeks ago because I knew I’d be busy spending time with the fam. 🙂
I recently found myself with an abundance of limes and clementines. I love putting limes in my water, but I had so many that it would have taken me ages to use them all up. I decided to bake. Key Lime Pie is a favorite of mine, but due to the fact that graham crackers are unavailable in Denmark, I had to get creative and try something else.
I stumbled upon this recipe for Moist Blueberry Lime Loaf Cake from I Wash, You Dry which is actually one of the cutest blogs ever. As usual, I tweaked the recipe a bit because I love to experiment, and it (thankfully) ended up being delicious.
The recipe only calls for limes, but I had a few clementines on hand so I added them into the mix as well. It was a great combination! I also put a little vanilla in the cake batter. If you read the recipe, you will see that she poked her cake after baking and brushed a simple syrup over it for added moisture. You are then supposed to let the cake soak up the syrup, let it cool, and then add the glaze. I am a teeny bit lazy and was so anxious to try the cake, so I skipped the syrup. I also didn’t want the cake to be too sweet. I didn’t find the loaf to be dry at all. The glaze added a bit more moisture and the perfect amount of sweetness! If you’re ambitious, I am sure the syrup is a great addition, but I didn’t find it necessary. 🙂
This cake was perfect for breakfast with a cup of coffee and in the afternoon with a cup of tea. I will definitely be making it again! I was actually really sad when it was gone. That is how good it was. 🙂
