Yesterday, I was looking for something fresh to eat that was not a fruit. I wanted that mix of sweet and sour in a warm way that could go with coffee. So I decided to bake the most moist lemon cake I have ever tasted. and it was delicious. I just had it for breakfast as well! The ingredients are the kind that you don’t have to plan for. They’re all the baking basics plus a lemon.
