    This looks absolutely delicious! And so summer-y! I’ve never tasted cream cheese frosting on a banana/lime cake, but it sounds divine!

  2. M.Clark says

    Yum, this looks very delicious. I would never think to combine banana with lime, very interesting. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  3. Laurie P says

    oooh, this looks a great recipe for an upcoming birthday! I think my mother would love it, she’s a big fan of both lime and banana!

    You have unwittingly made my husbands day by posting this recipe ! He is a huge fan of any desert that has lime in it. I can not tell you how many KeyLime pies I have fixed this man. This is such a refreshing twist on Banana bread/cake. These flavors sound so good together! Oh I can not wait to get it in the toaster oven. I am stubborn and refuse to turn the regular big oven on through summer and do very little baking. When I do bake something I use the counter top toaster oven. I will get major brownie or in this case lime points with the hubbie! Thank you again!
