Sticky Lime Cake

    Absolutely delicious. I made a gluten free version, as husband is coeliac. Still very moist and light. Used less sugar, 135-140 grams in cake. Will definitely be saving this recipe

    Cake worked well and super easy. Reduced the sugar in cake and syrup.

    I've just made 4 of these (minus the syrup) as my 5yo son requested lime cake for his birthday - it's sensational.  Thanks so much for the recipe!

    (and one day I'll try it with the syrup!)
