Key Lime Pie Sheet Cake

key lime sheet cake
I made this Pumpkin Pie Sheet Cake for Thanksgiving and it was a hit. My hubby loves Key Lime Pie, so I decided to make Key Lime Sheet Cake. The problem was I could not find a recipe for it anywhere. I found all kinds of variations of pie and some chess bars, but it wasn't what I had in mind. So I came up with this recipe.

Key Lime Sheet Cake

1 yellow cake mix
1/2 cup melted butter
1 egg
~*~
2 blocks of cream cheese (16 oz)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cans condensed milk
4 eggs
1/2-3/4 cup key lime juice
key lime zest

Prepare the crust by mixing the first 3 ingredients and pressing the dough into a greased jelly roll pan.
Prepare the filling by mixing the remaining ingredients together. Pour over crust and bake at 350 degrees for about 40-45 mins.

This wasn't very pretty when it came out. It was bumpy or lumpy looking, but it flattened out as it cooled. The filling is dense, but it had a light lime taste. I think I might cut the ingredients in half the next time I make it or make sure I have lots of people to serve it to because it makes quite a bit!

  3. I love foodie posts. I wish I were kitchen inclined. I got stuff to make a jello no bake cheesecake. Knowing me, I'll find a way to burn it anyways. Thanks for the recipe! I'm saving it for an ambitious day....
