Lemon throws a ray of brilliant sunshine into our lives. Spring at its best, a dazzling lemon cake brightens up even the worst of days.
Using a dash of our freshly made Limoncello in the batter along with the zest of a lemon, Liv and her friend gobbled up the glazed slices as we made our way to their afternoon dance class. With much of the fat replaced by yogurt I felt as though they were getting a treat I could feel good about. For an adult version Limoncello is used in the sugar glaze as well as the cake, easily subbing out plain lemon juice and zest for the kids.
Bright with zesty lemon, this light and tender cake won't last long on your table. One batch makes three smaller loaves or one large. Topped with a sweet lemony glaze the cake is nearly irresistible! Limoncello or lemon juice may be used interchangeably with equal heavenly success.
