Earlier this summer our friend Celine from Have Cake, Will Travel! made a Lemony French Cake, according to her it is her dream cake. Celine’s instructions are clear and easy to follow, and the cake was delicious.
The cake had the right moisture, was very rich in texture, lemony tasting and easy to make. I did change the recipe just a bit – all cooks have to make it their own, right? We like it lemony, so I used the zest of 2 lemons, and 3 teaspoons of the lemon extract. Otherwise I did follow Celine’s instructions. I did wait an hour before removing it from the cake tin, and yet longer to frost it.
We had a tasty afternoon thanks to Celine’s Lemony French Cake, especially nice on a chilly rainy November day.
