Key Lime Bread

Enter our giveaway HERE


Up until a few months ago I had never tried Key Lime pie. I don't know what my hesitation was but I just wasn't interested. My sister in law made it for a family dinner and I bit the bullet and took a piece. Oh my gosh! I loved it. So when she sent me this recipe for Key Lime Bread there was no way I wasn't going to try it. This bread is to die for! It was deliciously moist with a hint of lime without being overbearing. It was perfect. Plus it's BREAD-- which totally counts as a carb right? Not a sweet.... perfect for all our new years resolutions.

Key Lime Bread

2/3 cup butter- softened
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 Tbsp. grated lime peel
2 Tbsp. lime juice
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup milk

Glaze
2/3 cup powdered sugar
3 Tbsp. lime juice

In large bowl cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, mix well. Add lime peel, juice and vanilla-- mix until combined. Combine flour, baking powder and salt- add to creamed mixture, alternating with milk.

Transfer to 2 greased bread pans or bundt pan. Bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan. Combine glaze ingredients, drizzle over warm bread. Cool completely and serve.
