This sounds delicious because it IS delicious. Key Lime Pound Cake is wonderful!
I am passionate about foods that reflect the season I am in - Spring - Summer - Fall - Winter and this is definitely a winner for summer. I have gotten quite a few recipes for key lime pound cakes and found this recipe at Allrecipes.com and then I changed it up just a tweak.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and grease with butter and dust your cake pan with flour.
Here is what you will need to make this cake: A 10" tube (or bundt pan|), 1 cup butter, 1 cup shortening (I used a little less), 2 cups white sugar, 5 eggs, 3 cups flour, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 cup milk, 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 cup of key lime juice (I used almost a cup)
And for the glaze: I used 1 cup powdered sugar, 5 Tb Lime Juice and zest of 3 limes....I heated this on low stirring to get the lumps out!
FOR THE CAKE BODY: In a large bowl, beat 1 cup of butter, shortening and 2 cups of sugar til fluffy and beat in the eggs. Combine the flour and baking powder in another bowl and stir into the batter with the milk, vanilla and key lime juice. Pour into prepared pan and smooth top evenly.
Bake for 1 hour and 20 -30 minutes. Cool slightly before inverting on plate. While the cake is baking - make the glaze and then pour over cake.
