OMG I ate 5 in one day!

Sticky Lime Cakes

This is a recipe 'borrowed' from Julia's bridesmaid (Janis). It is based on a lemon loaf she makes called 'Linda's Lemon Loaf' and is from Janis' mother in law.

2 eggs
75g/2 1/2OZ butter melted
1 cup of sugar
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
Grated zest of one lemon
1/2 cup of milk

1/2 cup of sugar
The juice of one lemon

Beat the eggs and add sugar and butter. beat again. Add flour, baking powder, lemon zest and milk. Mix and bake in a greased lined loaf tin at 160C/325F for 35-40 mins.
Mix together sugar and lemon juice and spoon over hot cooked loaf after removing from the oven. Cool in the tin then remove and serve. It is great with yoghurt or cream.

To make these little sticky lime cakes simply use lime instead of lemon. You will probably need 2 limes as they are usually smaller and dryer than your average lemon.
Instead of cooking in a loaf tin spoon mixture into 12 muffin pans/moulds ensuring moulds are only 2/3 full. Cook at 180C/355F for 20 mins, remove from oven and spoon over the topping as before. Leave to cool in the muffin pans/moulds. EAT A LOT OF THEM!
