Johnny's Key Lime Cake Recipe

I met Johnny at The Aspen Food & Wine Event many, many years ago. We see each other once a year in Aspen and spend all day together for 8 long days. He works hard cooking and managing one of the 4 stages. He used to party hard, so hard that he broke his leg one year dancing. He doesn't do that anymore. Now we go to dinner instead.

When I asked Johnny for a recipe he responded with three! He chose "family" recipes, the ones that say "holiday". The coolest one he sent is a copy of his grandmother's recipe "burned" onto a piece of wood by his sister. What a cool way to share and pass on a recipe!
