Here is What You Need and How Much
1 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening

6 large eggs
3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup milk
1/8 teas. salt
1 teas. vanilla
1 teas. lime zest
1/4 cup key lime juice
Steps to Make Key Lime Pound Cake
Step 1: The first thing you’ll want to do is preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Use a heavy-duty electric stand mixer and use it to beat the butter and shortening, make sure it’s set to Medium Speed. Mix it until it appears creamy.
Step 2: After the creamy concoction is done, slowly add Sugar while continuing to beat at medium until it turns light and fluffy. Now you will want to add Eggs, make sure to do it one at a time, and beat until blended after adding each egg to the mix.
Step 3: You’ll want to stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl, and then add them to the butter mixture. Alternatively you can use milk. Be sure to begin and end with the flour mixture. As before, be sure to beat it at a low speed and make sure its blended after each addition. Lastly, you’ll want to stir in vanilla, lime zest, and lime juice before you pour the batter into a greased and floured 10-inch (12-cup) tube pan.
Step 4: Bake this concoction at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes or 1 hour and 20 min. or until a long wooden pick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. After its been baked, cool it in a pan on a wire rack for 10 or 15 minutes. Remove from pan to wire rack.
Step 5: Now you will prepare the Key Lime Glaze by mixing together 1 c. Powdered Sugar; 2 Tablespoons Key Lime Juice and 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla. Now immediately brush over top and sides of cake with the Key Lime Glaze. Be sure to let the whole cake cool completely which will take about 1 hour.
Eat and enjoy! :)
