Leave the mundane of the week behind you and lighten up your weekend with this refreshing lemon cake!
The most lemony of all the lemon cakes – the sweetest, tartest, filled with the most good stuff – cake! The best lemon cake!
Ok, I get it, you need more info before you can declare this the BEST lemon cake. I understand – I’m always quick to questions why someone (blogger, website, restaurant, window sign) thinks something is the “best” ever.
This lemon cake is the BEST ever lemon cake for one reason – it is absolutely loaded with lemon flavor, even taking a bath in a lemon simple syrup, leaving no confusion to this lemon cake.
There’s lemon juice and lemon zest, lemon extract and lemon baths. Let it be said – there is no shortage of lemon!
Plus… plus! The cake doesn’t just contain boring ol’ flour – there are ground up raw almonds, ground to a fine little powder, that are mixed in as well, adding a wonderful texture and a deliciously hint of nuttiness.
This cake is best if it sits for at least 24 hours before slicing into it, it really lets the lemon simple syrup soak through and make the most lemony flavor possible. Yes, you’re basically giving your cake a 24 hour lemon bath – like a lemon spa day, and we all feel better after a spa day, right?
So if you’re looking for the most intense, deliciously moist and delightful lemon cake, with a sticky sweetness, and delightful crumb. Well, look no further. You have found it – and the hardest part, well, it’s stopping after your first slice!Print
