More About This Recipe

  • Spring is in the air, and with it comes an avalanche of citrus recipes. Why? Because they are so fresh and bright and taste like sunshine.At least, that’s my theory!I love this time of year. For the smell of new growth, the warmth of a hot sun, the sounds of the birds chirping, and the mandatory ice cream fest that happens the second I even think about starting to sweat.I went ahead and combined key lime pie with frozen ice cream goodness in this simple crunch cake and you are going to love it!I like to serve this with a big ol’ dollop of whipped cream and a little lime wedge.
