  • 3/4 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1 ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Key lime zest (or regular lime zest)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup fresh Key lime juice (or regular lime juice)
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk


  • 2 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Key lime juice or regular lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon milk


  • Preheat oven to 350 F°. Spray a 12-cup bundt cake pan with non-stick spray.
  • In a stand mixer, beat the butter, sugar and lime zest on medium speed until creamy.
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time and then add lime juice until everything is combined.
  • In another bowl, combine flour and baking soda. Gradually add this dry mixture to wet mixture, alternating with the buttermilk.
  • Pour batter into the prepared bundt pan. Spread out evenly.
  • Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove cake from oven. Let cake rest 10 minutes in pan, then invert to a cooling rack. Let cake cool completely before pouring on glaze.
  • For Glaze: Whisk together powdered sugar, Key lime juice and milk until smooth and no lumps remain.
  • When cake is cool, pour glaze all over the top. Garnish with extra lime zest, if desired.
  • Slice cake and serve.
