When Life Gives You Lemons... Make Yummy Lemon Syrup Cake!

Posted by


We all know it has been one of those years... yes life has given many of us lemons this year! I know that is a metaphor but in all seriousness, it is lemon season now and if you are lucky enough to know someone with a tree of have one yourself... likelihood is you have more than you know what to do with!

This recipe is a take on an Italian recipe. It is a flat cake with a slightly course texture and crumb, but has a delicious intense flavour from the zest and addition of the lemon syrup that is poured on the finished cake. 

I made this cake for Pru's birthday in May and it was a hit with the family. I have made it several times since and it has worked out well every time. 

Why not make it this weekend? Beautiful served with the addition of whipped cream and perhaps a sprinkle of blueberries or some edible flowers to garnish the plate. Yum!
