This recipe hails from Grenada-and would be a grand finishing touch to your favorite Caribbean or spicy meal. Dust with confectioners' sugar and serve with fresh fruits of the season.
Ingredients
  Sifted all purpose flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Baking powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  White sugar 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Unsalted butter 1 Cup (16 tbs), chilled cut into tablespoon-size pieces
  Grated lime zest 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground nutmeg 1 Teaspoon
  Ground cinnamon 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground allspice 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Eggs 3
  Milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt, set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the lime zest, nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk, stirring after each addition. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

Bake for 75 to 90 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a rack to cool completely.
