I was inspired after a trip to the Florida Keys to make a cake using the key lime juice I brought back. We ate so many key lime pies that I wanted to make something unique using key lime juice. This is a favorite among neighbors, co-workers and my children. Sooo moist and delicious, the perfect combination of sweet and tangy!
