The Best Lemon Cake Ever

August 15, 2012

You guys know about my affinity for lemon cake so I was very happy to have this recipe featured on A Cup of Jo today – a blog that I absolutely love.

It really is a brilliant cake. Read the secret to making the best lemon cake ever over on A Cup of Jo and then for goodness’ sake, go and make some.

The opening ceremony of the Olympics is tonight and I have to say, I wish I was in London with all my friends. I hate to miss these big British celebrations – the Royal wedding last year; the Queen’s Jubilee; now the Olympics. It’s a weird thing to feel so far away and yet so connected to it all.

Anywho. In the spirit of the Games, a little self promotion. My Earl Grey Chocolate Cake was included in this Olympics-inspired PBS Food feature. I have to say, that cake is quite lovely, if you haven’t tried it.

And finally, some great posts from around the web this week…
