Limed-Up Cream Cheese Pound Cake - Dee Dee's

Diane Hopson Smith


A co-worker shared this recipe with me several years ago. One of her friends had made it for her on her birthday. She raved about this cake until she attempted to bake it herself. She said it rose and rose and spilled over in the her oven. She didn't know what went wrong. My guess was that she used self-rising flour instead of all-purpose. I made it for her next birthday. After that, this was the most requested cake in the office.

Today I added lime to the recipe! What an absolutely divine combination!!

Hope you enjoy!
