Lime cake recipe!

I had a lot of limes laying around my kitchen, and what do you do when life gives you limes? You bake a cake!
This cake is fresh and gives you a little "wake up" without being too sour or too sweet - it's the perfect combination of sweet and sour that gives a perfect lightness for the summer heat.
The summer heat we have been feeling a lot in Denmark lately, so when I served this for my family and our friends that were coming over, they loved it! You should try it out too!


The cake:
250 g of flour
125g butter
1 teaspoon og vanilla powder
4 eggs
200 g sugar

50 g coarsely chopped hazelnuts

Lime pickle:
The juice of 2 limes
50 sugar

200 g cream cheese
50 icing sugar

How to:
