After all the praise this simple cake has garnered I knew it would have to land on our free-choice plate at some point before all things come to an end.
Batter less the eggs. I find that the beaters tend to overly attract lemon zest whenever it is called for. Make sure to scrape all of it off the beaters, it hides there under a blanket of the batter!
Ready to go.
I added some amaretto to the sugar syrup for some extra almond flavor.
It was golden and it was glorious!
It totally lives up to all the hype.
