Notes about this recipe

    This is a lovely cake! However, against my better judgement I followed the instructions closely and ended up with a curdled mess of a batter. She has you add all the milk and lemons zest in one go to the thick and and creamy butter/sugar/egg mixture before folding in the flour. I normally would have added the milk and flour alternately in several additions. Nothing that could not be saved in the end and it did not affect the final cake. Quick to make and big hit with the kids.

    Simple and tasty cake, I liked the addition of lemon in this cake. Best on the first two days.

    ..it's a lovely and buttery cake that isn't too sweet so works perfectly with the added fruit.
