Deliciously Dry and Tasty Lemon Cake
Lemon Cake is one of the more well-known recipes. Many people make it, even some who don’t know much about cooking. If you are like me, you won’t think this is the best recipe for you. So here are some of the things that I love about this sweet, yet dry cake.
Lemon Cake is really easy to make. You do not need a lot of equipment, or fancy ingredients to give it a great flavor. It only needs baking ingredients. But you can also get creative with your flavors and make a few adaptations, if you wish.
To start with, lemon and cake go together like peanut butter and jelly. They have such a great taste to them that everyone loves them. There are other bakery items that people use as a topping for their cakes, but lemon has a special place in the heart of many. We just cannot get enough of it.
Lemon and cake can be combined and produced into a magnificent tasty treat. When your cake is done, you can have it plain or with some add-ons like honey, nuts, fruits, and/or something sweet. You can have it any way you would like. One of my favorites is to serve it with whipped cream.
Of course, I wouldn’t want you to just have a plain cake. It needs some lemon flavor added to it. One way to accomplish this is by using lemon-flavored gelatin.
This is a little known thing and is really the easiest way to get some great flavor into your cake. All you have to do is purchase a small jar of the gelatin, fill it with lukewarm water, and then let it set. This is the easiest way to add the flavor to your cake. The mixture will be the same consistency as the color of gelatin and you will not be able to tell the difference when it is set.
The flavor adds so much to your cake, that it becomes almost impossible to taste the lemon flavor on its own. With all the other things that you are adding to your cake, the lemon flavor is just one more thing to mask it. It really works well.
There are other ways to add some lemon flavor to your cake as well. One method that you may want to try is to add a few slices of lemon in with the rest of the batter.
This will add a great deal of flavor, although it may not turn out as well as the first method described above. The other option is to simply cover the bottom of your cake pan with lemon slices and let it sit in the pan overnight.
The next morning you will find that your cake has absorbed a great deal of lemon flavor. While you cannot see the lemon flavor, you can certainly smell it. So if you choose this method, you may want to have someone help you spoon it into the pan because it may become more difficult to remove.
If you prefer the look of your cake, you can cover the top of the cake with candy coated or sugar-coated candy. These will add the lemon taste to your cake. Of course, these won’t taste as good as the real thing, but they will certainly add a great deal of color and taste to your cake.
So, if you haven’t tried making lemon cake before, why not give it a try. You may be pleasantly surprised at how delicious it can be.
