Crispy Lemon Cake – Clandestine Cakealong

Oh my! I love this cake – I’ve made 3 times in the past week (I haven’t eaten them all – One made the perfect moving house present for a friend)

Really, really simple to make and such a refreshing taste and great texture. The picture was from the remnants of the last of the 3 cakes when it was slightly past its freshest so it looks a little heavy. The cake still tasted amazing though and got demolished very soon after.

I did think the we didn’t need quite so much of the lemon and sugar topping. It was a little too thick for me but it was gorgeous nevertheless.

Soured Cream Coffee Cake Roundup

Good to see the entries for the Soured Cream Coffee Cake were as successful as usual. What I forgot to mention in my post was, the cake actually has no coffee in it. It is considered to be the perfect accompaniment with a cup of coffee.

Great job, ladies! We are doing really well with the cake-a-long. We will be taking a short break for the summer holidays but will return on Tuesday 26th August with Rachel McGrath’s Raspberry Yoghurt Birthday Bundt on page 198. Quite appropriate as I will be celebrating my 40th birthday the week before! EEK! SO OLD!

    Hi Helen, enjoy your 40th. Any chance you’ll post the next cake after the raspberry bundt before end August so I can upload the pics before I go away for 3 weeks in September. Thanks :)
