I am joining the ranks of the food people with a pretty cake.
See all the other fabulous morsels on Michael's blog, Designs by Gollum featuring the now famous "Foodie Friday".
Lemon (Drizzle) Cake
I got this recipe from this book I got at Marshalls a couple weeks ago. It has fabulous, delicious pictures which always sells me! I don't like cook books without pictures!
OK, Here's the recipe. But I'm warning you right up front . . . forget about steps 6 and 7!!!
They take a really good lemon cake and make it so sour that I actually threw my first piece away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! However, my mouth still wouldn't stop puckering!!! I had to have something sweet and have it fast! But I am getting ahead of myself!
Here's the steps 1 through 5. (I refuse to tell you 6 & 7!)
Grate a rind of one lemon and squeeze the juice. Should be about 3-4 TBSP.
Grease round pan with butter and place parchment paper on bottom.
Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl:
4 eggs whisked
2/3 C sour cream
Grated rind of one lemon
3-4 TBSP Lemon juice
2/3 C vegetable oil
Now, FORGET ABOUT DOING STEPS 6&7!!
I quickly frosted my cake with a butter cream frosting. It would also be very good with a cream cheese frosting but I had a can of the butter cream on hand and I needed something sweet FAST!
Now, the cake was very good, moist and delicious. After all it was my birthday cake : ))
NummmmmmmmmmHave a sweet Friday.
