Mrs. Michael J.'s notes for this recipe:
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 =)

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 =)

Susan, Thank you too much, i bought a hand held citrus squeezer @ TJ Maxx a couple of years ago and that really got me started w/the whole lime gig =)i buy them @ costco and squeeze the whole bag into a jar or pitcher.

Vicky, it depends on the serving size if i remember right it's 1.5 for small and 3 for a larger piece.
