May 16, 2018

Ingredients

  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ white cake mix
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs

  • 1 can (300 mL) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup Key lime juice or regular lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 4 drops yellow food colour
  • 1 drop green food colour

  • 1 container Betty Crocker™ Whipped vanilla frosting
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime peel

  • Fresh strawberries
  • Key lime slices
  • Lemon leaves

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with baking spray with flour.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cake ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.
  • 3
    Bake 27 to 33 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. With handle of wooden spoon (1/4 to 1/2 inch in diameter), poke holes almost to bottom of cake every 1/2 inch, wiping spoon handle occasionally to reduce sticking.
  • 4
    In medium bowl, stir together filling ingredients (mixture will thicken). Pour over cake; spread evenly over surface, working back and forth to fill holes. (Some filling should remain on top of cake.) Refrigerate 1 hour.
  • 5
    Spread frosting over cake; sprinkle with lime peel. Garnish as desired. Store loosely covered in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Key lime pie is not green in colour unless food colour is added. If you'd prefer a greener filling in this cake, add a couple drops of green food colour to the filling before pouring it over the cake.
  • Tip 2
    If Key limes aren't available in your grocery store, look for bottled Key lime juice near the other bottled lime juices.
