Here are some of my starting ingredients: eggs, cream, lemons, and four. This is an outright advertisement for King Arthur Cake Flour. King Arthur is my favorite store located right down the road from me. I love their recipes and their products and they have a very good website. Of course, I have to find another recipe to use up this cake flour, an ingredient I do not use very much.
I do not really enjoy grating lemons, but here they are, and the job was not too messy with lemon peel all over the place….
Ready to go into the oven after folding in the butter…
and the finished product, looking good.
This cake was a little bitter for me, too much lemon peel, and no one at home ate it, so I brought it into work and they all loved it! They think I am a great cook. It was an easy recipe to make, high in calories (I think all of her recipes are), and rather dense so a thin piece goes a long way. I think it would be interesting to serve with a fruit sauce, such as a blueberry sauce.
Here is a member of my fan club, she was not at all interested in lemon cake, was happy to sleep on my bed instead! Looking forward to the next cooking experience.
