This lime cake is sweet, a little tart and a lot more delicious because it has strawberry swirls in it. Among all the lime cake recipes, this is the most jammy and berrylicious. Make this cake to celebrate the spring and hold the front door to welcome summers.
take chopped Strawberries and boil it with sugar in a saucepan. Keep stirring it constantly till everything melts. Allow it to simmer for a couple minutes more to thicken
Then take it off the heat and leave it to cool down completely. Sieve to make it smooth. Your Strawberry compote is ready.
Take a large bowl and whisk the eggsin it till they double up in volume.
Add the sugar in parts to it and whisk.
Once the sugar dissolves add the oil and whisk.
Pre-heat the oven at 180c or 350F.
Now mix all the dry ingredients together and sieve twice. Add it to the wet ingredients in 2 parts and mix gently. Loosen the batter with oil.
Once everything incorporates nicely, pour the batter in your loaf pan. Now, spoon the Strawberry compote on the top of the cake and use a toothpick to swirl it around.
In case you are using non-stick loaf pan, you can pour the batter directly. Otherwise, grease and dust the pan or line it with parchment paper.
Bake the cake at 180c or 350F for 40 mins or so. When the cake starts to shrink from the edges, check if it's done by poking a toothpick in the centre. If it comes clean, then take out the pan from the oven, otherwise bake for a while longer. Keep checking if it's done at regular intervals.
Allow the cake to cool in the loaf pan for 10 minutes before taking it out. Slice and serve
