Easy and amazing key lime magic cake recipe, watch as this cake develops magical layers.
I thought about making this Key Lime Pie Magic Cake recipe post in the style of Wordless Wednesday. For the past few days I've been completely stuffed, sneezing like crazy and if I rub my eyes any more, I swear they might pop out! It's late and I want to go to bed. But I wanted to explain a little about my latest magic cake.I just found out one of our neighbors in the street has a key lime tree. So far that makes our street an abundance of lemons, key limes, figs, oranges, peaches, grapes kumquats and plums. We could seriously start our own farmers market. She was kind enough to give me some key limes and of course the first thing I thought to make was key lime pie, right? But I haven't made magic cake in a while and my mantra is, you can make anything into a magic cake. This is my fifth version of the layered cake which usually looks like it's a positive fail when it goes in the oven but comes out with a cakey top and soft custard bottom layer.
I always follow a rule of mine whenever I begin to change a recipe, trying not to add more ingredients but adjust or switch out the ingredients already listed. Changing a liquid to another liquid or switching up seasonings. This way there's less chance of the structure of the recipe failing.
I tried to get as much key lime pie flavor into this recipe as I could, so for me that meant adding sweetened condensed milk and the key lime juice.I was happy with the cake but be warned magic cakes aren't particular sweet or gooey like brownies or blondies, but I love the texture and I could definitely taste the tartness of the key limes.
