Notes & tips

The more zest you add, the more flavor the bread will have. And don’t forget to use only the most outer colorful part of the citrus skin.
This recipe works well with other citruses:
  • 4‚Äď5¬†limes;
  • 3¬†oranges, 1¬†lime,¬†cinnamon.
Use a wooden toothpick to check the cake for readiness: insert it into the cake in several places, if the toothpick is dry, the cake is ready. If the top of the cake is getting to brown, cover it with tinfoil.
