Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat an 11x7-inch baking pan with cooking spray with flour.

  • Cream sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer. Add eggs, yogurt, and lime juice; mix well. Mix in lime zest. Sift in flour, baking powder, and salt; mix well. Pour into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until center is set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, make the glaze by heating sugar and lime juice in a saucepan over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves and becomes a clear liquid, 3 to 5 minutes. Poke holes throughout the top of the cooled cake using the end of a wooden spoon; pour glaze over the cake and let soak in. Continue to let cool.

  • Mix powdered sugar, lime juice, and water together in a bowl for icing and drizzle over the cooled cake.

Cook's Note:

If you bake this in a loaf pan, it should take about 1 hour.
