Nancy's Story

Got this recipe from a cookbook someone I went to school with has put together. I made it for a cookout we had at the lake on Memorial Day weekend & the guys my Husband works with requested it as well. Everyone that has tried it really likes it.

*Side Note*
Since there were many many questions regarding the use of the Liquid Margarita Mix instead of the frozen mix, I subtituted 10 oz of the liquid for the frozen. It came out perfectly.
Also I edited the eggs to say "Room Temperature". This should help with the butter clumping up as well.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Perfect picnic pick! Sweet and fruity with just a slight tang, this is a wonderfully refreshing cake that I'd be proud to take to any party or bake sale.

Hi Nancy, question...can the frozen limeade be used in place of the margarita concentrate?

Thank you in advance :)

I just found this site from a friend's recommendation and this was the first recipe I tried. Baked it today and let's just say that cake plate is going to be empty by tomorrow...if it lasts that long! Nancy, your cake is a keeper - thank you!
