Strawberry Lime Buttermilk Cakes and ShortCupCakes



Posted by -Amber


I was so excited when Gerri posted this challenge for May! I had been wanting to make a buttermilk cake ever since tasting one recently. It seems I was so excited about how amazing it tastes and the different ways that I could accessorize the recipe that I made it three times! Here is the link to my blog about the variations that I made.




The changes that I made to the original recipe posted by Gerri were that I used fresh strawberries and lime zest. This recipe reminded me of a moist strawberry shortcake which is why I decided to make the other two recipes with whipped cream cheese frosting. If interested that recipe can be found here at Allrecipes. This frosting is amazing and holds up well overnight. I followed the recipe exactly and just added a teaspoon of creme de cassis. Yummy!

Agree with you! This recipe is definitely a keeper! I just made the original recipe and it turned out perfect. We use buttermilk in our traditional dishes and I liked the economy of ingredients and ease of preparation!

Thank you everyone! That frosting is amazing :) It is not too sweet or too heavy and it holds up better than whip cream!

Wow that frosting job looks amazing! And I love the idea of lime zest (instead of orange or lemon), never would have thought of that, but it sounds YUM!
