Lemon cake is one of those decadent treats that I try not to make too often, mostly because I can’t stop eating it. But my husband is participating in a two-day paintball game this weekend and I thought to myself: this would be the perfect time to make that cake I can’t resist. No, not because he’d be out of the house I’d have the cake all to myself (though that thought did cross my mind). My thinking went more along the lines of slicing the cake into several pieces, putting one aside for myself, then sending the rest off with my husband before I changed my mind and ate
two three pieces. Paintball guys don’t mind it when you send baked goods to them and they don’t care how much butter is in a cake. They’re too busy running around the woods and torching calories at an inhuman rate. I’ve considered playing paintball for these calorie-burning benefits alone… but then there’s that whole dodging paintballs thing and well, I’d rather limit myself to that one piece of cake.
There is a lot of butter in this cake. Like, a lot. But this is also the best lemon cake I’ve tasted and it will fill your home with an aroma so alluring you’ll be tempted to sit next to the oven while it bakes. Or do a happy dance, clapping your hands in anticipation of glazing this bad boy with lemon glaze. That’s right, more lemon flavor. Love it.
