Lime Cake

Last week while shopping my local grocery store I found a saran wrapped container of limes just a little past their prime. Price marked, $.99. Yes, ninety-nine cents for what I later found to be 16 limes! Oh what heaven!

 I juiced them all and froze them in small ice cube containers for future use. Only a few days later, while surfing the internet, I came across this lime recipe. Not only a perfect use for some of my freshly squeezed limes, but how wonderful for a light, summer dessert! I do plan on tweaking it a little and changing it to suit my needs, but I wanted to be sure I copied down so I don't lose track of it before I can make it.
