A Lemon Cake to Die for!

by 247tasty

I remember the first time I had this incredible lemon cake. I was visiting a friend that I hadn’t seen in a while. At that time she was studying to become a pastry chef. This was the cake that she was baking that day. The smell instantly got my attention. It was so aromatic. She said it was some kind of a project that she was gonna submit that’s why she was baking it. I had a slice of it and boy, was it awesome! I remember telling her that she was gonna be a heck of a pastry chef. I was not wrong. Today, she has her own successful pastry shop and she hasn’t forgotten about this amazing lemon cake. To Jenny, if you are reading this, I am so proud of you! Thank you for the recipe.
