I don’t like having cake leftover that tempts me to eat it too often, so I continue to come up with 1-2 serving individual cake recipes. When it’s gone, it’s gone. That works best for me. This lime cake is wonderful frosted with my lime frosting: http://buttoni.wordpress.com/2010/10/16/lime-frosting/ When doing citrus desserts, rather than extacts, I like to use Boyajian Citrus Oils. They pack a stronger flavor punch and the tiny bottles last forever it seems. I have seen this at high end grocery stores, but ordered my set of lemon-lime-orange direct from Boyajian on-line some years ago. I just had to place a new order this past week, but this tiem I ordered the larger bottle of just the lime and orange, as I use those the most. I absolutely LOVE this flavor oil for baking. It’s just like biting into the citrus peeling and in fact is purr oil extracted from the peeling! This is the set of Boyajian oils I started out with and it’s a nice starter set: http://www.boyajianinc.com/boxCitrus.html This recipe is not suitable until the grains rung of OWL due to the oat fiber.

DIRECTIONS: In a 4″ ramekin, cereal bowl, or individual cake pan, melt the butter in a microwave for 30 seconds. I used a latex 5″ mini cake pan.
Beat in the eggs, liquid Splenda and lemon oil. Add lime zest and stir again. Now add dry ingredients and stir until batter is smooth. Microwave on HI for about 1 minute 10 seconds or until done in the center. Tip out onto plate, cool before frosting. Garnish with a bit of grated lime zest and serve.
