Lemon Cake With Icing Coverage Of Real


For many people, lemony anything is their favorite dessert. Here's what you can bake for such people. The cake is bright with the taste of lemon juice, which also flavors the easy powdered sugar icing, and has grated lemon zest as the final touch. Because of the beaten egg whites that are folded into the batter, the cake is also supremely airy and light, while butter and yolks add just enough richness.
