When I think of Key Lime, I usually think of summertime and sunshine. There is such a bright taste in a little lime! Which is why I think there is no better way to usher in spring than with something so full of summer promise. Click here to jump to recipe.
This recipe is for a dense one-layer cake made with olive oil. It has a bold citrus taste that is enhanced by a sauce made from white chocolate citrus candy.
It is also delicious without the sauce when eaten warm from the oven! The sauce is made with Lindt Lindor Citrus Truffles. Those are the same white chocolate truffles balls that I used to decorate the cake.
The truffles make a perfect sauce that pairs perfectly with this cake.
This recipe makes a thick 8- or 9-inch cake. Once you pour the citrus sauce over it, a slice is very satisfying.
