Ingredients

For the Cake:

  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter room temperature
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 5 large eggs room temperature
  • 3 cups sifted cake flour
  • cup key lime juice
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon fresh coconut flavor

For the Icing:

  • 1 1/4 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons key lime juice
  • Optional: Shredded coconut and lime zest for garnish

Instructions

For the Cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 315°F. Prepare a 10 inch bundt pan with non-stick method of your choice.
  2. Combine butter and sugar in stand mixer bowl, and beat on high speed until light and fluffy for at least 6-7 minutes. There is no leavening in this cake so you must whip as much air into the batter as possible to get the lift you want.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  4. Slowly add flour in increments to mixture but be careful not to overbeat at this point.
  5. Add in key lime juice and coconut extract and mix until just combined.
  6. Pour cake batter into prepared bundt pan, and bake for 1 hour and 15-20 minutes.
  7. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then remove from bundt pan to cake or serving plates.

For the Icing:

  1. Stir together confectioner's sugar and lime juice until its pourable.
  2. Spoon over the cake and sprinkle with coconut and lime zest and serve.
