Baking instructions. Preheat oven to 170 deg.

Add in juice of lime. Followed by the sifted ingredients together with the mixed rinds. Lastly add your milk and combine the cake batter evenly. You can scatter lime rind on top of the batter once in the loaf. Pour into loaf tin and bake according to the above baking instructions. Test with skewer or poke with a knife should come out clean. You can ice or drizzle the cake with lime glaze, I preferred just plain with a lovely cuppa tea.❤️Let the cake cool a bit before slicing and serve.It cuts clean once cooled and keeps shape.
