Happy Easter form our house to yours with a picture of our annual Easter bouquet. My kids have dyed the hollow eggs over the years.

My suggestion for your Easter coffee table would be a fresh tasting lime Bundt cake with lime zest, lime juice and yogurt. A moist and fresh cake that keeps well and will add a taste of spring to your plate.


*  2 sticks and 2 tablespoons (257 g) unsalted butter, at room temperature
*  2 cups (400 g) sugar
*  3 eggs and 1 egg yolk
*  1 teaspoon vanilla
*  1/4 cup (7 g) lime zest, from about 6 organic limes
*  3 tablespoons (45 ml) lime juice
*  1 cup (260 g) yogurt, ( I used Bulgarian)
*  3 cups ( 360 g) organic all purpose flour
*  1 teaspoon baking powder
*  1/2 teaspoon baking soda
*  1 teaspoon salt

*  3 tablespoons lime juice
* confectioners sugar

Adjustments for 6500 feet altitude:
add 1/2 cups and 1 tablespoon (90 g) of flour, minus 1/4 teaspoon baking soda, minus 2 tablespoons (25 g) sugar, add 1 more egg


Preheat oven to 350 F convection. Butter a 10 -15 cup Bundt pan and dust it with bread crumbs.

Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a seperate bowl and set aside.

In a kitchen machine with paddle attachment cream the butter and sugar on medium high speed (about 4 minutes). Add eggs, one at a time. Mix in vanilla, lime zest, lime juice and yogurt. Mix well. Add the flour mixture slowly until well combined, don’t overmix!

Transfer dough into the Bundt pan and smooth out the top. Bake in preheated oven for about 45 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Let the cake cool in the pan and invert on a cake plate. Mix confectioners sugar and lime juice until smooth (and not to runny!) to make the glaze. Drizzle over the cake. Done. Enjoy!

There is a bundt shop close by that makes a wonderful key lime bundt but I'm not fond of the food coloring they use. I love yours because it isn't bright green and I know it tasts great because all of your recipes do. Your decorations are beautiful.

Lovely! I just posted a lemon cake and I foresee a lime cake in my future baking!

If I hadn't already been to the grocery store for my meal tomorrow, you can bet this cake would be on the table. Citrus in anything gets my attention. So sorry to read you can't go the meetup next week… DARNIT. 🙂
