Words will not be able to describe my family’s love for lemons. Even if it isn’t summer, we always want anything that has lemon on it. Sometimes, we use lemon to marinate our meat to give it that extra zest. Sometimes, I make lemonade even if it’s really cold. And most of the time of course, I make dessert that has lemon as its main ingredient. Lemon in a sweet decadent dessert usually means heaven. My husband and I usually buy a lot of lemons at the grocery. The thing is, we usually fail to ask each other whether we already have this certain item.
So most of the time we have an onslaught of lemons at home.What to do with them? Of course, transform them to a dessert recipe that everyone will enjoy. Usually, that’s either a cookie recipe or a cake recipe.
Cakes are the safest bet though. They make good use of a lot of lemons and that will prevent us from wasting them. My husband usually loves lemon poppy seed cake, but he will eat anything lemony. This is where this lemon cake from Smells Like Home comes in. It’s an amazing recipe that both my husband and my kids couldn’t get enough of. They love the taste and the softness of the cake.
