Food | Key Lime Pie

As I mentioned and documented on Instagram, I made my first key lime pie last week. I am a total cake person, but on warmer days I love to make something a bit more refreshing and using summer produce is key (literally in this case). I introduced you to some of my go-to baked goods for hot days here but a key lime pie was still missing from the list. I got the recipe from the Jamie Oliver website and only changed it slightly by using light condensed milk (instead of the normal one) and a little more lime to increase the flavour. Th texture is creamy yet not too rich and it tastes absolutely great! I love the contract between the crunchy, sweet digestive crust and the creamy, soft and slightly sour filling. A true summer baking dream!


PS: Check out my lemon tart here, it is similarly gorgeous!

  1. I've been wanting to make some key lime pie for a while now, I just haven't got round to it yet. When I saw your Instagram photos it made me want it even more. And now with these photos, I'm even more determined. It looks yummy :)
