Tip

1. If not a fan of lime substitute this for the juice of the lemon used for the cake batter.

2. These produce a light fluffy cake that rises quite alot during baking.

3. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts or pecans after icing or add them to the cake batter for a bit of crunch if desired.

4. You could make 12 larger cakes in a texas muffin pan if desired. Adjust baking times to suit.

    Cupcakes were ok...mine didn't turn out as dark as yours but that could be the brown sugar I used. The icing was very soft and didn't pipe nicely. Probably won't be using this recipe againSad
