    I made this for my daughter's birthday. It was good! I needed an extra egg though and baked it in a deep tin so it took longer. DD loved it as did the adults but some of the kids found it too tangy. Have just made it again but with orange instead of still tasty but not as good as the lime version

    This is mostly Marslady's Lemon Drizzle Cake, with a little bit of tweaking.
