Ingredients
1 cup butter, softened
cup shortening
3 cups sugar
6 large eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
teaspoon baking powder
⅛ teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lime zest
cup fresh Key lime juice



Key Lime Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons fresh Key lime juice
teaspoon vanilla extract



Directions
1.Preheat oven to 325. Beat butter and shortening at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.
2.Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to butter mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla, lime zest, and lime juice. Pour batter into a greased and floured 10-inch (12-cup) tube pan.
3.Bake at 325 for 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 20 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 to 15 minutes; remove from pan to wire rack.
4.Prepare Key Lime Glaze by whisking together powdered sugar, fresh Key lime juice, and vanilla until smooth.
5.Immediately brush over top and sides of cake. Cool completely (about 1 hour).

Thanks! Was beginning to think I should quit posting recipes since no one seems to want any new ones. I LOVE cookbooks, have 2 HUGE bookcases full of them!!! Back when I started collecting them, there was no internet, no allrecipes.com, no place to look them up! I have to tell you, there is an emotional attachment to them, and each time one of our daughters come to visit (and we have 5) I let them each take a few of my "treasures" home with them. It is hard, but I feel they appreciate them! I guess I am Italian at heart (if not heritage), but I have always felt you express your love for others thru cooking!

Well I AM Italian, and I'm the same way. No daughters though, just sons. I warned them not to ever tell their wives how much they love my cooking but just praise their wives' efforts.
