I have one of those lime/lemon squeezers too and it is a GODSEND. I am going to try making a key lime cake like you said txkat.. that sounds heavenly!

Key lime gets bitter when it is cooked for too long, so baking the flavor into the cake isn't your best option. I make a key lime cake just like a tres leches, since the mixture for a key lime pie, and for a tres leches is very similar. Bake a dryish sponge cake - Genoise or hot milk, whichever you prefer. When the cake comes out, poke about a zillion little holes in it. I use the bamboo skewers you use for kabobs. Pour a mixture of one can sweetened condensed milk mixed w/ 3/4 c key lime juice ( Nellie and Joes is best...unless you are a masochist and squeeze your own) Rest in the fridge for 4 or more hours and frost with stabilized whipped cream.



This recipe sounds just wonderful, and I will make it sometime. However, I am looking for a key lime cake that you can stack for a wedding cake. This would be too moist, right?

here is a recipe that someone else posted about 1 year ago. Can't remember who it was--sorry.

***here's the recipe I use. I make an orange curd filling and a champagne buttercream and call it mimosa cake. It is very popular for weddings:

* 2 3/4 cups sifted cake flour
* 3 teaspoons baking powder
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 2/3 cup butter
* 1 1/2 cups white sugar
* 3/4 cup champagne
* 6 egg whites

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 10 inch round cake pan.
2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until very light and fluffy. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together, and then blend into creamed mixture alternately with champagne.
3. In a large clean bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into batter to lighten it, then fold in remaining egg whites. Pour into prepared pan.
4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.*******

Well, here's my yellow cake recipe. It's a big recipe, comes out very high and light. I like to doctor it up and make strawberry cake, lemon cake, spice cake, etc out of it. Also, it's a firm enough cake that I use it as my tres leches cake. Just add milks to finished cake icon_biggrin.gif Let me know if you need to know how to doctor this up.

Also, I'd be willing to share my chocolate cake recipe over PM only. I don't want it published in public online because it's a family recipe that I improved on so is my own recipe. I have won a baking contest with it and just made it for the state competition...should find out soon if I won or not. I'm thinking to enter it in the fair as well icon_smile.gif

my yellow cake recipe:

Buttermilk yellow cake

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar

4 eggs, separated

3 cups flour (AP flour but can substitute equal weight of pastry flour)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar

1 cup buttermilk
1.5 tsp vanilla

Cream butter and sugar until light. Add egg yolks, one at a time until well encorporated. Sift dry ingredients. Add alternately with buttermilk/vanilla, starting and ending with dry. Mix only until smooth. Don't overmix. Whip up the whites separately and fold into the batter. Bake in a 9x13 pan at 350' for approximately 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

does the champagne have to be extra dry to taste good?
I've heard for real champagne cakes (as opposed to using flavoring) it should be extra dry champagne...
