Lime and Macadamia Cake

This is a magical cake and when cumquats are in season I use them instead of the limes.

Made with limes exactly as instructed. It just crumbled and had an unpleasant very bitter aftertaste, as reflected in some of the other comments. A friend suggested boiling the limes might cut this bitterness, but frankly I wouldn't bother trying the recipe again. Given the rather expensive ingredients I would prefer something more fail-safe.

Tasted great with cumquats but when I turned it out it collapsed and looked a real mess!

Made this cake today, but substituted limes for 1 & 1/2 Navel oranges. The oranges will need to be boiled first to reduce the bitterness of the skin). The cake was delish, and i will definately be making again!!!

I thought this sounded great when Anna was makiing it. It was very easy to cook looks great but tastes very very bitter. I think it would be better to grate the rind and then remove just the flesh of the lime. Not sure if I would try this again.
