These are my new addiction. The cake is so moist and yummy and makes a good basic butter cake. The lime syrup you brush ontop is reall zingy and yummy and makes these cakes about as morish as you can get.
Oven to 180 C
Line a 12 hole muffin pan with muffin cases and spray with non stick spray.
Combine butter and milk in a saucepan and stir over heat just til butter melts - remove and cool for 10 mins.
Combine the zest of the lemons and lime in a small bowl.
Beat the eggs and vanilla with an electric mixer til thick and creamy.
Gradually add sugar and beat well between each addition.
Add 2/3 of the combined zest and stir through.
Stir in half the sifted flour then half the butter mixture then the rest of the flour then the butter.
Fill each case with cake batter and bake for about 30 - 35 mins til lightly browned ontop.
Combine the juice of the lemon and the lime with the remaining zest and the 2 tablespoons of sugar.
Brush over the tops of the cakes til all the syrup is used up.
