Corona-lime cake with lime curd

30 minutes
45 minutes

New Corona Cero is an innovative, first-of-its-kind, non-alcoholic beer. This is a breakthrough in non-alcoholic beers. In the brewing process, alcohol is extracted from Corona Extra, resulting in a non-alcoholic beer that provides all the refreshing flavour Corona is renowned for. Use this golden brew unexpectedly, and make syrup to soak a moist vanilla cake. Top with zesty lime curd for a loaf cake you won't

  • 3 large free-range eggs
  • 200 ml milk
  • 180 ml oil
  • 620 g box Woolworths Easy to Bake Vanilla cake mix
  • 355 ml bottle Corona Cero
  • 3 T sugar
  • chopped limes, to decorate (optional)
  • icing sugar, for dusting
  • For the lime curd:
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 100 g sugar
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • 1 lime, zested
  • 60 g butter, cubed

1. Preheat the oven to 170ºC. Prepare the cake according to package instructions and pour the batter into a greased and lined 23 x 13 cm loaf tin. Bake for 45 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from the oven.

2. While the cake bakes, place the Corona Cero and sugar in a saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved. Set aside.

3. Poke holes into the cake using a skewer or knife, then pour over the syrup. Leave to cool.

4. To make the lime curd, place the water in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Using a bowl large enough to fit on top of the saucepan without touching the water, whisk together all the ingredients except the butter.

5. Place the bowl over the water and cook until the curd has thickened, stirring with a spatula. The curd should coat the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat and whisk in the butter. Allow to cool or chill until ready to use.

6. Remove the loaf cake from the tin and top with lime curd. Decorate with chopped lime and dust with icing sugar.
