My husband is not real crazy about chocolate cake or brownies so, for his birthday one year, I decided to get creative and come up with something I thought he might like better. This recipe uses a boxed cake mix, but adds a few very easy ingredients that make it a little special... a sweet dessert but with just enough tartness to keep it interesting. And, it was a hit with the hubby!

How to Make Cherry-Lime Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix cake according to package directions; bake in bundt pan until done.
  • 2After cake cools a few minutes, turn cake out onto cake plate/platter; allow it to cool completely.
  • 3Divide powdered sugar equally into two small mixing bowls. In one bowl, add the fresh-squeezed lime juice. Add more juice, if needed, to make a glaze that will easily spread.
  • 4In the second bowl, add the grenadine syrup and red food coloring. Again, add more syrup, if required, for glaze to easily spread.
  • 5Glaze the cake first with the lime glaze so that cake is completely covered. Then drizzle the cherry (red) glaze over the lime in loops and swirls.
  • 6Garnish the cake around the edges with lime slices and maraschino cherries.
  • 7OPTION: Cherry extract or other cherry flavoring can be substituted for the grenadine syrup. Also, bottled lime juice works well in a pinch (faster and more convenient).
