Barefoot Bonus: Lemon Cake


This month's Barefoot Bloggers Bonus recipe was Lemon Cake, chosen by McKenzie of Kenzie’s Kitchen. I love lemons, and this cake is extremely lemony, in a good way.



First, there's lemon zest and lemon juice in the cake itself. Then, while still warm, the cake is brushed with a lemon syrup.



Finally, the cooled cake is glazed with a mixture of powdered sugar and lemon juice. In my case, there's a hint of blood orange juice along with the lemon, tinting the glaze a pale pink.


It's difficult to stop at one piece.




For a morning snack, it can't be beat. This has been 'daughter-approved' and declared almost too lemony. (Is there such a thing?)

It looks just like the photo from the book. I'll have to make that this weekend, it will go perfectly with the 15 pounds of fruit I bought today from Costco.

Too lemony? No such thing!

I find it hard to believe something could be too lemony--especially a cake. I really liked this one. Your cake looks great!
