Preparation

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325 F. Beat butter and shortening at medium speed, or until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.

Stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low-speed just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla, key lime zest and key lime juice. Pour batter into a greased and floured 10-inch (12-cup) tube pan.

Bake at 325 for 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 20 minutes (I had to bake mine for 1 and 30 minutes for my oven), or until a long wooded pick inserted in the center of cake comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 to 15 minutes, remove from pan to a wire rack.

Prepare Key Lime Glace, and immediately brush over top and sides of cake. Cool completely (about 1 hour).
