Mrs. Michael J.'s Story

This was originally a lemon cake that i got from my Auntie Shirl in the 70's. Because of my habitual tweaking nature and the fact i love lime, this is what i always fall back on, it's quick, easy, i always have the ingredients on hand =)


1 pkg
white cake mix
1 small
pkg of sugar free lime jello [it's all about the wiggle room]
egg whites
limes zested and juiced
water added to the lime juice to equal 1 1/4 cup [i use all lime juice about 4-6 limes juiced]
1/4 c
olive oil
1 c
powdered sugar
lime zested and juiced [2 tbs.]

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 put rack in the middle position. Prepare your bunt pan w/shortening and flour. Mix cake mix, jello, lime zest, egg whites, olive oil, juice + water to equal 1 cup or lime juice to equal 1 cup. Beat until smooth. Pour into prepared bunt pan.

Bake @ 350 for 37-41 minutes

Let set in the pan on a rack for 10 min to cool turn out onto a your serving plate.
Pierce the top w/a fork all the way around. Note you can also bake this in a 9x13 pan [cooking time 32-36 minutes].
in a 2 cup measuring cup measure 1 cup of powdered sugar, add lime zest and just enough juice to make a pour able frosting. Drizzle and spread around the top. This is a great hot day sweet =)

yes, you may, but the taste won't be as fresh, i'm a fresh squoze lime nut! There's nothing like fresh lime in my opinion =)

Can you use lime juice in the bottle? If so, will it taste as good?
