Notes about this recipe

  • PatriciaScarpin on January 29, 2013

    I've made this cake following the recipe to a T and it turned out amazing. Then, I made it with passion fruit juice instead of lemon and oh, what a delicious version it turned out to be! Tender beyond words.

  • Not So Humble Pie

    The cake is indeed wonderfully textured. Delicate and not very sweet, nicely contrasted with a sweet, tangy lemon glaze.
