Helpful hints

  • In addition to grated lime peel you can garnish with fresh strawberries, lemon leaves and key lime slices.
  • Store cake loosely covered in the refrigerator.
  • Instant pudding mix is very high in phosphorus. Do not substitute. 
  • May use 4 packages of shelf stable Snack Pack Sugar Free Vanilla Pudding® cups to replace pudding mix and rice milk. Place in a bowl and stir in lime zest and food coloring. Mix half with frosting and spread the other half over cake.

Key Lime Pie Poke Cake

It does not show where to add the lime juice just the lime juice. I assume it is added to the pudding mix along with the rice milk. Is that correct. Dietitian comment: Add the lime juice to the pudding mix along with the rice milk. I have adjusted the preparation notes. Thank you!

Step 3 of this recipe says : "beat cake mix, water, eggs, egg whites and oil with an electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds"...I don't see in the ingredients list ANY additional eggs...yet they are in the directions...clarification please...also...WHO makes or where can you find UNenriched Rice milk? every HEB and Wal-Mart in Waco Texas only carries 'enriched' rice dream in the refrigerated this a shelf safe rice milk i should be looking for or what? would love to make this but don't wanna mess it up...what about this new Coconut milk thats out now? i can find it... Moderator comment: My error--the eggs were replaced with egg whites to reduce phosphorus so the corrected recipe calls for 4 egg whites and no additional eggs. Look for unenriched rice milk in the shelf stable package. One of the most widely available brands of unenriched rice milk is Rice Dream.
