Key Lime Cake is one of those cake recipes that everyone loves, even if they don’t love lime. I’ve never been a huge fan of Key Lime Pie, but this cake is one of my favorites! This is especially a good cake for those of us who just don’t love regular frosting – the “frosting” in this recipe is much lighter.

I love desserts that look really fancy, but are actually really simple to make. This recipe is one of those and the taste is so light and refreshing!

Cake mix and whipped cream filling infused with fresh lime juice

Ingredients in Key Lime Cake

  • 1 white cake mix (add water, oil and eggs according to package directions)
  • 3 Tbsp lime juice
  • 2 cups raspberries or blackberries (or both!)
  • 8 oz container Cool Whip
  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (3-4 limes squeezed)
  • lime zest

How to make Key Lime Cake

Make cake mix as directed, except substitute 3 Tbsp of lime juice for 3 Tbsp of the required water.  Bake at 350° in two 9-inch cake pans.  Let the cakes cool completely before adding the topping.

Zest limes and save the zest to sprinkle on the top of the cake.  Squeeze the limes and whip the condensed milk and lime juice together for about 4-5 minutes with an electric mixer.  Fold in the Cool Whip.  If you want the topping to appear a little more green, add a few drops of green food coloring.

Place one cake on a cake plate and sprinkle half of the berries on top.  Smooth half of the topping mixture on top of the berries and then place the other cake on top.  Spread the remaining topping on the second cake and sprinkle the rest of the berries on top, along with the lime zest.

Refrigerate for about 2-3 hours before serving.

CAN YOU REPLACE THE COOL WHIP?

If you can’t find Cool Whip where you live or you prefer not to use it in recipes, you can use stabilized whipped cream instead. If you just use regular whipped cream, the consistency will be too light and the cream will not hold up very well when mixed into the filling. It’s very simple to make your own stabilized whipped cream and it just takes a few minutes!

To make stabilized whipped cream, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 4 ounces of cream cheese (softened to room temperature)
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream.
  1. Beat the cream cheese with the powdered sugar and vanilla until soft and smooth.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the whipping cream just until soft peaks form.
  3. Add the cream cheese mixture to the whipped cream and beat until stiff peaks are formed. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

A little tip for making whipped cream faster. Use a metal bowl for whipping the cream and place the bowl in the freezer for about 30 minutes before you make the whipped cream. This will significantly decrease the amount of time that you will need to beat the whipped cream – the process will go much faster!

This healthy Texas caviar is a simple to make appetizer recipe that pairs best with tortilla chips. Serve it up on game day or at just about any get-together. The recipe serves a crowd and everyone loves it.

Best Texas Caviar RecipeAbout This Cowboy Caviar Recipe

Unlike other salsa-like recipes, this one has something the others don’t- avocado. In my opinion, don’t ever leave it out because that’s what makes this dish go from good to stellar.

You can, however, trade a can of beans or the black eyed peas and have the dish taste pretty much the same.

How to Serve Cowboy Caviar

We serve this dip in a large bowl with tortilla chips on the side. You can also serve it in smaller, single sized cups for easy serving.

Leftovers are incredible over tacos or on quesadillas.

how to make Best Texas Caviar RecipeWhat’s The Difference Between Texas Caviar and Cowboy Caviar?

Believe it or not, there is no difference. Texas caviar goes by many names including Mississippi caviar, and cowboy caviar! But whatever it’s called, this tasty bean dip recipe stays pretty much the same, and I think we can all be a bit thankful for that!

The BEST Texas Caviar Ingredients

-1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

-1 can great northern beans, drained and rinsed. You can use Black Eyed Peas instead- I think they taste amazing!

-1 can sweet corn, drained. You can use frozen corn if you prefer. No need to cook ahead or anything, just make sure the corn will have 20 minutes or so to thaw in the dip before serving.

-3 good sized Roma tomatoes, seeded & diced. You don’t want the runny seeded part of the tomato in the dip, so just gently remove it before slicing the tomatoes.

how to make Best Texas Caviar Recipe-1 bunch green onions, sliced thin. You can use 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion instead.

-2 large avocados, diced. Adds a great texture to the dip!

-about 1/2 a bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped

-8 oz {1 cup} Italian dressing. Can use pre-made or an Italian Dressing packet mixed according to package directions.

-1 small lime, sliced in half {I juice 1/2 the lime into the dish, then use the other half to garnish

Best Texas Caviar RecipeHow to Make Texas Caviar Dip

Add all of the ingredients into a large bowl, including the Italian dressing and stir. Serve immediately.

You can make the dip several hours ahead of time and just give it a stir before serving. It’s best served the same day.

Serve with tortilla chips. It’s also amazing over chicken tacos or chicken enchiladas. Or quesadillas. Or just eaten by itself, as a snack. YUM.

Can I Freeze Texas Caviar?

Yes you can, just place your mix inside of an airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to eat it, place it in the fridge overnight to thaw, stir, and enjoy.

How Long is Cowboy Caviar Good For In The Fridge?

After it’s been made, keep your bean dip caviar stored inside of an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Just make sure to mix it around before eating because a lot of the flavors will settle to the bottom.

Absolutely! If you want to make this drink healthier, dairy free, or even vegan- all you need to do is swap the milk for a different non dairy/vegan alternative.

For this recipe, we used traditional cookies and cream Oreos. But, I like your style! Swapping them out for a different variety like peanut butter pie, or strawberry shortcake Oreos all sound like incredible ideas! Oh yum, now I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!

How Do You Thicken a Milkshake?

There are a few different ways that you can thicken this milkshake. By adding in more vanilla pudding, you can thicken it. You can also add in more ice for an alternative option.
