Lime-Glazed Citrus Tea Cakes - by Summer
I pretty much had everything on hand to make them except lime juice for the glaze and a lemon for the zest. Fortunately I do my grocery shopping on Sundays, so I picked some up earlier in the day and I was good to go! I also don't have 8 x 4 pans. This recipe makes enough for two of those. I have slightly smaller pans, so I used three of them instead. I adjusted the baking time, so instead of 40 minutes, I checked them after 30. They bake about 5 minutes longer and were perfect.
This is a tasty little cake. I think it's perfect for this time of year as it seems "springy" to me and spring is right around the corner (right?!) I really liked the lime glaze on top too. I would definitely make these cakes to bring as a hostess gift. I also think they would work well for a brunch in the spring or summer time. I will definitely make these again!
