If life gives you lemons…

…make a lemon drizzle cake

But first I have to tell you what a bad girl I am; About two weeks ago I  while I was waiting for my take away, I was reading a magazine in which I found a four page article with cake recipes amongst which this lemon cake recipe

which looked delicious, and I got that greedy feeling that I just had to have these recipes. 
 so as sneakily as possible I tried to rip out inch by inch while people around me enjoyed their diner, and before I had the whole thing my order was ready…  

I had to try a sort of Houdini article trick, and thanked kindly for the food. I know it was not my most decent moment, but I could not help myself.

As for the actual cake, my sister invited my family and ourselves over for an easter brunch, and this light lemon cake seemed like a good addition for the afternoon.

It was a great afternoon, with lovely food; of course eggs,  freshly baked bread and delicious cheeses then a little “tea break” when we were entertained by my sisters’ cats Russel & Jacky

In round two we had fresh fruit with cream & lemon cake which I also served with lemon curd mixed with mascarpone.

Besides of course for lemons, you need 3 eggs, flower, baking powder, almonds & milk.

But to prevent you getting into the same situation as I did I found the recipe online here

my addition to this recipe is some grounded chocolate in between the dough

Enjoy!!
