On my days off I look for breads to bake and freeze so I dont buy a lot of bad snacks, Im glad to find this recipe and will be baking this soon, it is a favorite flavor of mine, this looks so delicious. Thank you for sharing this recipe. By the comments I have read I know this will turn out so good.
I’ve made plenty of sweet loaf breads and I made this one today. It sunk in the middle of both loaves. Can anyone tell me why. I followed the recipe exactly. Thanks
I made this today, as written. It's cooling now and looks just like the picture. I've eaten it before but never made it. I only had Persian limes and found it took about 5 to make the breads and the glaze. I had to let it cool a little longer, maybe because I used glass pans. Great recipe!
We really enjoyed this bread, so easy to make and full of flavor. Like another reviewer I added 1 cup of sour cream and also added lime zest into the icing! I will be making this often as it’s now a family favorite!
This bread is so amazingly like pound cake. I even forgot the walnuts and the husband didn't notice! I plan to make the frosting tonight but one loaf is already gone...Awesome recipe; highly recommended.
Excellent. Love this recipe.
I've tried this recipe several times ... The flavor was def there but lacked moisture in the bread ... I added 1 cup sour cream to the batter and stirred in the lime zest last .... For the frosting, I used: 1 (8oz) cream cheese, 1-1/4 c conf sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla, about 3 Tblsp lime juice (adding 1 Tblsp at a time, taste, add more to achieve the sweet/tart balance) and about 1 Tblsp lime zest ........... Spread frosting liberally over the top of each loaf .............. AWESOME!
Delicious! Our 7 year old grandson loves this .....and helping me make it
This bread was delicious! I am a lover of lime and coconut so I substituted 3/4 cup flaked, sweetened coconut for the nuts. I also used the juice of 3 key limes in the cake and glaze as well as the zest of 2 key limes for each. It adds quite a kick just the way I like it!
Have this in the oven now and I added about 3/4 cup of diced fresh strawberries that needed to be used. Smells wonderful, and as others suggested, I doubled the juice/zest amounts. Also thought about adding diced fresh peaches another time. Skipped the nuts as I didn't want to take time to toast and cool them as I ALWAYS toast nuts to go in a recipe. Had I thought about it in time, I would have added a drop or two of green food coloring.WHOA! Just came out of the oven....what a KEEPER this is.......YUMMO!!! Excellent flavor and texture. Just HAD to sample it while it was still warm....didn't even bother with the glaze.
