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 =)

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.

I came up with point total as 1 box white cake mix (61) points
Jello is free, 3 egg whites free, 1 cup powder sugar (13), 2 cups fat free cool whip (5). Total for entire cake is (79). 12 slices would be 6.6 per slice

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