For my Valentine’s Day care package I decided to make use of a sack of lemons that I received from a friend whose lemon tree is literally dripping with fruit. I’ve had Ina Garten’s Lemon Cake recipe on my mind for years but never attempted it until this evening. Since it makes two loaves, I knew I’d need an excuse to get rid of one so I wouldn’t be tempted to eat lemon cake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner all week.
I’m happy to say this tastes a LOT better than it looks. Next time I won’t stop at just greasing and flouring the loaf pans – they definitely needed parchment to prevent the cake from sticking. Hopefully my friends don’t hold it’s ugly looks against it.
