  • Zest & juice of 2 limes
  • 50 grams Butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla essence

Butter Cake Base

  • 80 grams castor sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 110 grams plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Juice and zest of 2 limes
  • 110 grams melted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

Recipe's preparation

  1. Pre heat oven to 180 degrees. Grease or spray a 9 inch spring form tin.


    Make the filling – Into TM bowl place the sugar and mill for 10 seconds/speed 10. To the TM bowl add cream cheese, egg, butter, vanilla extract, lemon juice and zest. Blend for 20 seconds/speed 5 until completely combined. Set aside.

  2. Make the cake base – Into TM bowl place sugar and mill 10 seconds/speed 10. Add flour, baking powder and salt and blend 5 seconds/speed 5. Add melted butter, eggs, lime juice and zest, vanilla extract. Blend batter for 20 seconds/speed 5 until combined. Do not overmix.

    Pour batter evenly into spring form tin. Carefully pour the cream cheese filling mixture evenly over the cake batter to within a ½ inch of the edge of the tin. The filling should cover all but the outer ½ inch at which point the cake batter will be visible.

    Bake for 35 – 40 minutes or until the cake has puffed up and a toothpick inserted near edge of cake comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully remove spring form side and allow to cool on rack for 1 hr. Transfer to fridge and chill completely before serving. Serve chilled with a dusting of icing sugar, fresh whipped cream.

    Not too sure if I will make this again. The flavour is fantastic - tart and buttery - but the cake texture is very dense.

    Very easy and very tasty tmrc_emoticons.) Accidently left out the fresh lime juice from the butter cake, but it still tasted nice and was moist.  Decorated with Almond Flakes and dusted icing.

    Will definitely make again tmrc_emoticons.)

    This will be a fav from now on! Very simple and tasty. Used 60g (120g total) of fresh lime juice in both custard and in base, it was the perfect amount.
