  8. Mix in vanilla extract, lime juice, and lime zest until well combined.

  10. Bake for 1 hour and 15-20 minutes. (I check the center edges with a wooden skewer to make sure it is completely done)
  11. Let cake cool before gently removing from the pan.
  12. When cake has cooled completely drizzle with glaze.
  13. To make the glaze, mix together powdered sugar and enough lime juice to create a thick, yet pourable consistency (think Elmer's glue) Stir in lime zest.
  14. Serve cake garnished with lime slices, a sprinkling of lime zest, and vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
