Have you heard the saying, “40 is the old side of young and 50 is the young side of old?” Well Martha’s son is visiting from Connecticut and turned 50 on Monday so we all met at the Cofresi Resort to wish him Happy Birthday. Wendell is also a diabetic and fond of agave for sweetening his drinks and desserts. We had to have a cake of-course and Martha asked me to do the honors of baking Wendell a cake with agave nectar.
This lime pound cake is made with 1/2 cup agave nectar instead of 1 cup of granulated refined sugar. Everyone enjoyed the cake which was luscious with the zest and juice of a large lime. I think the agave allowed the lime to really sparkle.
