  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs. Beat in the lime peel, juice and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Fold in walnuts. Transfer to two greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Combine the confectioners' sugar and enough lime juice to achieve desired consistency; drizzle over warm bread. Cool completely. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).
