[For my best friend and everybody who loves lemon] Lemon cake

Over 15 years ago I ate this cake for the first time in my life. In kindergarten it was usual to bring a cake for the other kids when it’s your birthday. One time my mum made this fluffy and sweet lemon cake and it was SO delicious! Since then we baked this cake together many times and of course I had to bring it for every birthday in kindergarten!! When I grew up I made this cake by myself several times and everytime it tastes like home.




When my best friend asked me for an easy and delicious lemon cake recipe I immediately had to think of this cake! It’s kind of a family recipe and remains the best lemon cake recipe for me. Light and fluffy with a slight sweet and sour taste. The cake can be baked one day ahead and the next day, it still tastes fresh. The perfect cake for a sunny day paired with an ice coffee and a long dating session with your very best friend.



Enjoy the cake do not eat it fast,
just like the friendship make it last.

Based on this quotation, this one is for you, my favorite girl, Anna!
