Lemon Cake With a Story That I Wish Was Mine.

I have a craving for lemon. And sugar. And butter.
So rather than giving in to my first (probably-heading-for-diabetes) impluse and just throwing all those ingredients into my blender and making sweet fluffy lemon butter icing and eating it out of the bowl with a teaspoon while watching some equally soft fluffy movie, I looked up 'lemon cake' and came across a cooking blog and a really great story that sounds like it came directly from that aforementioned fluffy movie.

Thereby coming close to ticking both my boxes.

You have to visit are hereby invited to visit Sarah Secrett (what a cool name) and read her story.  And try the recipe, if you want.

Clickety here.

And here is 'her' cake, just out of my oven.  It smells divine.  It's one of those ones you pour lemon and sugar over the top the instant it comes out of the oven, so it has that lovely crisp, tart topping.


  1. What a great story! Thanks for the link. And your cake looks fab, I can smell it from here...mmm.

    1. Pity you are not closer Judith. I make nice coffee and tea too.

  2. That cake looks good and the blog post that went with it was delightful. In fact I went on to read some more of her posts. Thank you for the tip off.
    Now, was the cake good and lemony?

    1. You are welcome Helsie. The cake is REALLY WONDERFUL!

  3. I love everything about LEMON.
