This sweet lime bread is a treat for breakfast or dessert!

After I mentioned a sweet lime bread my cousin made the other day, I had several requests for the recipe, which I was finally able to get from my cousin on Saturday!

I can’t imagine how it would be any better … unless, perhaps, you added a powdered sugar icing on top (á la Starbucks’ iced lemon pound cake)…

Yum!
