Lime Cream Cake

I found this recipe in a Taste of Home magazine from several years ago and had to try it because I'm obsessed with anything LIME. It was so light tasting and REFRESHING! Hope you like it!

Lime Cream Cake
1 box butter-recipe yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1/2 cup butter, softened
7 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup lime juice
2 cups whipping cream, whipped and slightly sweetened

Combine the cake mix, eggs, butter, water, and lime juice with a hand mixer for 2 to 3 minutes. Equally divide thick mixture into two greased 9-inch round pans. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in pans, then cool completely on a wire rack.

In a bowl, blend together the condensed milk and lime juice until smooth; fold in the whipped cream. Split the cooled cake layers in half so you have 4 layers of cake. Place bottom layer on cake plate and put about 1 1/4 cups lime cream between each layer of cake, topping with the remaining cream. Serves 10 to 12.

TIP: I think cake mixes tend to turn out a little dry, so try adding a box of vanilla pudding mix to your cake batter before baking. It will be super yummy! Also, you could definitely use different cake mixes or cake made from scratch if you prefer. I think a lemon cake mix would be amazing!
