Can you believe that I managed to make, bake and decorate this loaf all in my hour lunch break? (the perks of working from home!) I’ve never actually made a lime cake before – I always opt for a classic lemon but this time I broke the boundaries and made this beauty – a lime and almond loaf. It’s just delightful, honest. Light, soft and full of… lime!
