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?)
