When I was a kid, Key Lime Pie was my favorite dessert. I rarely came into contact with it except briefly on a trip to Florida, but I discovered those Yoplait Whips in Key Lime Pie flavor were a suitable substitute. Skip to a few million years later at the Blossom Bakery in Chelsea, NY – I encounter my first slice of RAW key lime pie. This baby costs $7 a slice, but damn…that was heaven. Every time my birthday rolled around all I wanted was just a slice of raw key lime pie from Blossom Bakery. One birthday I realized, “I can make this myself.” And make it, I did. Now I don’t wait for special occasions. Every day is a special occasion. In Guatemala, we are blessed with an abundance of avocados and limes, so basically this cake is just asking to be made all the time. A few friends asked for the recipe a while back and I just came across the email, so now I’m gifting it to YOU! I know I promised exact amounts but….someday
