Key Lime Pie Bundt Cake
This Key Lime Pie Bundt Cake has such a light, zesty and refreshing flavor! It is super moist and the cream cheese frosting on top is the perfect finishing touch!
About 6 years ago, my husband and I took a cruise to the Bahamas. One of our stops was in Key West, Florida. It was then that I had my first bite of Key Lime Pie. It was tart, sweet and absolutely heavenly! I made an easy and quick version of the Key Lime Pie that you can check out if you are interested :)
This bundt cake was inspired after the delicious key lime pie that so many of us love and adore!
The flavors are all there and infused into each bite of this moist and delicious bundt cake.
This cake is a summertime must! It is has such a light and refreshing flavor and an absolutely creamy and perfect cream cheese frosting over top.
We made this for a family BBQ on the 4th and it was a huge hit! It received countless compliments and requests to have it debut again soon. If you are looking for the perfect summer dessert for your next gathering, give this Key Lime Pie Bundt Cake a try!

That frosting looks incredible! You are an expert froster! And, really, the entire cake sounds so, so good! Love that you put it in bundt cake form too - so fun :)
What size tip did you use?
Hi! I made this yesterday. It is delicious and the icing is amazing! Some of my coworkers ate it for breakfast this morning. I think it would also work well in a 9x13 pan. Next time I'll post a pic.
Which direction did you pipe the frosting to get it to look so beautiful? Inside to outside or vice-versa?
Is this a 10 cup bundt pan or a 12-15 cup bundt pan? Thanks, Laura
Could you make cupcakes with this recipe?
This is absolutly one of the best cakes from a mix I have ever made. Its moist,
flavorful, and delicious. Would highly reccomend creating this cake AND frosting.
Oh Yum!! I can't wait to try this recipe. I love anything citrus!
How long would I bake four mini bundt cakes, do you know?
What size bundt cake pan please?
What sizes of cake mix and pudding mix?
What box size of cake mix did you use?
Did you use a piping tip for the frosting. It is just so smooth. It looks so beautiful.

Thank you! no, I actually didn't. I just put it in a ziplock bag and cut the corner off and piped it that way. You totally could use a frosting tip if you would like though :)
Key Limes are hard to get in my area...has anyone use fresh lime juice and zest>
I do not care for key lime pie at all, BUT I absolutely LOVE this key lime bundt cake!! It is so moist and delicious with that hint of key lime. The icing is out of this world also! Definitely a keeper! I even wrote the recipe on a recipe card to file in my box because I didn’t want to lose it from the website.
Hi Nikki, your cake looks fabulous. Can you tell me how you achieved the icing. Did you use a particular nozzle and can you let me know which nozzle you used and I’ll comment when I make this cake. Kind regards, Jo
Very moist cake. Not much lime flavor. Next time I will add lime zest. Didn’t make the cream cheese icing because it was too hot. Used a white icing glaze instead.
I made this I added toasted coconut to the bottom third
