I’m finally back again, after a rather long break. This time I present you with An Easy Lime & Thyme Cake with Lime Icing. I’ve had a few friends ask if I have stopped blogging altogether A couple of readers have even left comments on posts saying they’re looking forward to seeing my posts again. Just to clarify matters, I haven’t stopped blogging. We’ve been otherwise occupied the last few months. Unexpected short trips, some home renovation, paperwork and stuff as our daughter prepare to leave for her masters at Oxford. Throw in a couple of viral fevers into the mix and it meant that I had no time for the blog.
The fevers are gone, all is back to routine on the home front and the daughter is in the UK. I’m on a short vacation and now have loads of time on my hands. So it’s time I got back to the blog, and it’s time for cake.
Since July, we have gone through our wedding anniversary and all our birthdays. We couldn’t celebrate them though, as we normally would. Our daughter turned 21 this year but she and I were both in bed with a viral fever that week! As soon as we both got a bit better I wanted to bake a cake for her. Still a little low on energy, I picked a simple cake. The flavors were influence by the fact that Akshaya loves lime in dessert. I also had a bag of fresh thyme in the fridge that I wanted to try using in a sweet dish.
After looking around a bit I came across this recipe which I adapted to my taste. This recipe makes a really delicious a moist lime flavored cake with a very nice hint of thyme. It’s not too sweet and the layer of Lime Icing on the top gives the cake just enough sweet and a little tang to make it perfect.
This Lime & Thyme Cake is perfect whether you’re looking for a special tea time cake or simple yet stylish looking celebration cake. Even nicer, is how little time an effort it takes to make and decorate it.
